Four killed in Wexford crash were on their way to a wake

Doug and Lily Alexander, both aged in their 70s, and their sons Doug Jr and Stephen, both in their 40s, died at around 6.30pm on Monday evening after colliding with an articulated lorry on the N25 road near New Ross.

Motorists were urged to avoid the area given the road closure and the lengthy diversions in place.

Their remains were taken to University Hospital Waterford for postmortem.

THE partner of one of the Wexford horror vehicle crash victims said she felt "blessed" to share a part of her life with him in a heartbreaking final tribute.

The scene of the crash remains sealed off by police who have closed a section of the N25 near Cushinstown. It then made a sharp turn right, as if to make a U-turn back towards New Ross.

The driver was treated at the scene for severe shock.

Gardaí have appealed for any witnesses to contact New Ross Garda station on 051 426030, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station.

A statement by the force added: "Steve was a proud father who left behind two daughters, age 11 and 10, who were his pride and joy". On Tuesday afternoon, his partner Susan Schulze paid tribute to him in a Facebook post.

"I love you Steve and I will love you forever and a day".

"He showed me true love".

Stephen Alexander was a police officer for the Bolingbrook Police Department, the Chicago Tribune reported.

A statement from Bolingbrook Police Department in IL said father-of-two Steven (49) had served with the force for 17 years.
