We can confirm that one car was travelling the wrong way along the Expressway and we are still trying to ascertain why that was.

We are now appealing to anyone who was in the area and saw the collision to come forward.

A man was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries and at this stage we are still trying to contact his family to make them aware.
