Ten injured in weekend traffic accidents

Ten people needed hospital treatment, and three men were arrested, following two separate traffic accidents at the weekend.

Five people were injured in a three-car collision in County Londonderry in the early hours of yesterday.

It happened at the junction of the Clooney and Ballygudden Roads near the entrance to City of Derry airport, Eglinton, shortly after midnight. A 40-year-old man was arrested by police for questioning following the incident.

A short time later, five people were taken to hospital after a collision between a stolen car and a taxi near Lisburn.

The incident occurred around 2.30am at the Belfast Road, Lambeg south. Two men were arrested by police as a result of the accident.

The first was arrested on suspicion of three counts of dangerous driving causing grievous bodily injury, taking and driving away, driving while disqualified and no insurance. His alleged accomplice was arrested for allowing himself to be carried.

One of the men in the stolen car suffered suspected head and spinal injuries.
