Tractor Driver Sought By Authorities

The driver of a green tractor is being sought by authorities in Co. Tyrone following a road traffic collision which occurred earlier this month.

The incident involved the driver of a “green tractor” who provided details which appear to have been incorrect, according to members of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) based in Co. Tyrone.

Taking to social media in a plea for information on the matter, local PSNI officers said:

“Police would like to speak to the driver of a green tractor believed to have been involved in a road traffic collision with a BMW X2 on the Stangmore Roundabout, Dungannon, on Thursday, September 3.

The collision occurred at around 8:00pm that day. The driver of the green tractor did stop and provide details but it appears that the details provided are incorrect.

“If you were the driver of this green tractor or observed the road traffic collision and may be able to help police with their enquiries, please call 101 quoting crime reference number 1983 of September 3, 2020,” the police statement concluded.
