A driver has been killed after a crash between a car and a lorry which has closed a main road

A Carmarthenshire road will remain closed “until further notice” after a motorist was killed in a collision with a lorry.

Emergency services were called to the scene of the crash involving a car and a lorry on the A485 in Pontarsais at around 3.15pm on Monday.

A Dyfed-Powys Police spokeswoman said: “At approximately 3.15pm this afternoon a two-vehicle collision occurred on the A485 in Pontarsais, between Rhydargaeau and Alltwalis.

“The vehicles involved were a lorry and a car.

“Tragically, the driver of the car sustained fatal injuries.

“The road is closed from Glangwili roundabout to Windy Corner garage, and will be until further notice.”

There are reports of heavy traffic in Carmarthen, with diversions in place.

Businessman Barry Thomas, of Gwalia Garage, near Peniel, said he knew the collision had been serious by the amount of emergency services rushing to the scene.
