One man has been taken to hospital after a three-vehicle crash at Nutts Corner in Co Antrim.

The crash happened at around 3.30pm on Friday on the Dundrod Road.

Emergency services were sent to the scene including the charity air ambulance.

The Ambulance Service said one person was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast by road.

Sinn Fein South Antrim MLA Declan Kearney said he was shocked and concerned to hear of the crash saying news of it came just after he held a meeting with police.

He said: "Rural road safety across the South Antrim constituency was discussed at length during this meeting, including specific concerns which we raised about the area in which this accident has occurred.

"We spent considerable time discussing the need to further raise awareness, and improve safety for all road users.

“I was therefore extremely shocked to hear that another serious accident has occurred in my constituency.

He added: "My thoughts are with everyone impacted by this accident, and also the emergency service personnel who were despatched to attend the scene."

The road was closed for a time and has since been reopened.
