Larne trucker recovers after being caught up in murder-suicide events

victims: Grandparents Jim and Marie Quigley who died on Monday in a murder-suicide. Right, lorry driver Harry McNeill Legg was injured when Mr Quigley drove his car at him

A LORRY driver from Co Antrim was last night recovering after his truck was involved in a head-on collision with a Co Louth man who drove deliberately at him after he killed his wife in a murder-suicide tragedy.

Harry McNeill Legg from outside Larne, is said to be distraught by the tragic events on Monday afternoon.

He was back at home yesterday in Ballygally having suffered only minor injuries but was too shocked to speak about the incident.

Retired father-of-four Jim Quigley, who had a history of depression, died in the head-on crash after driving in the wrong direction on the M1 motorway between Dundalk and Drogheda before veering into the path of the oncoming truck driven by Mr Legg.

The badly beaten body of his wife Marie was discovered by the couple's son Kieran in an upstairs bedroom of their home in Rathmore, Hackballscross, shortly after the car crash.

Mr Quigley and his wife are to be buried side by side at St Patrick's Cemetery following a joint funeral on Saturday. The family have appealed for privacy.

The couple will be waked together at their home in Newtownbalregan, near Dundalk, between 11am and 9pm today before removal to St Joseph's Redemptorist Church ahead of Requiem Mass on Saturday.

The shocking circumstances surrounding the couple's deaths have left their family and friends reeling.

Garda believe that Mr Quigley murdered his wife before taking his own life by deliberately colliding with the truck.

The couple's children, Kieran, Sonya, Mark and Gavin described both their parents as "beloved", adding that they would be "remembered with love" by all their family.
