A four year old has been taken to hospital following a serious road traffic accident this afternoon on the Ballybogey Road.

It is understood that the four year old was travelling in the car with another male driver when the accident happened.

NIFRS, NIAS and PSNI attended the scene.  The four year old was outside the flipped car with the driver still trapped inside when emergency services arrived.

NIFRS use cutting gear to release the driver from the vehicle.

A spokesman for NIAS said: “NIAS despatched a Rapid Response Paramedic and two A&E crews to the scene. Ambulance personnel were assisted by Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue crews and PSNI at the incident.  “Two patients, one adult and one child, were assessed and, after initial treatment at the scene, were taken to the nearby Causeway Area hospital with non-life- threatening injuries.”

Both were later taken to Causeway Hospital in Coleraine.

Commenting on the RTA on the Ballybogey Road Cllr McCandless has praised the Blue light Emergency Services for their prompt efficient service in the response to the accident. “In spite of the pressures and increased workload that NIFRS, NIAS and PSNI face they still manage to perform an excellent service.

I wish the passengers of the car a full recovery from this traumatic incident.”
