A woman was airlifted to hospital following the accident.
A spokesperson for the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service said the woman’s injuries were “very serious”.
A number of others were also injured in the crash. Belfast-bound traffic is being diverted in Dungiven and L'Derry-bound traffic is being diverted at the bottom of Glenshane Pass via Maghera.
