Two people were rushed to hospital for treatment following a three-vehicle collision in Co Antrim yesterday.

The incident happened on the Frosses Road near Ballymoney just after 4pm.

Police confirmed traffic was reduced to one lane for over three hours as emergency services dealt with the aftermath.

The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) confirmed that it received a 999 call at 4.09pm.

"NIAS despatched an emergency crew to the scene," it said.

"The charity Air Ambulance, with Hems crew on board, was also tasked to the incident.

"Following assessment and initial treatment at the scene, two patients were taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital, one by Air Ambulance and the other by road ambulance."

The PSNI added: "The fire and ambulance services also attended the incident on the Frosses Road in Ballymoney at the Knock Road junction."

The two injured people were last night being assessed in hospital.

Their conditions are unknown.
