NORTHERN IRELAND’S ROADS CLAIM ANOTHER LIFE AFTER WOMAN DIES IN TWO VEHICLE SMASH

POLICE ACCIDENT 2THE province’s roads have taken a second life in the space of a few days.

Last night, a woman in her 50s was killed in a car crash in Carrickfergus, Co Antrim.

She died after two cars collided on the main Belfast Road out of Carrick shortly before 8 pm on Wednesday evening.

A fleet of ambulances and paramedic cars along with the fire and rescue service attended the scene.

Fire crews had to cut the roof off one of the cars in a bid to free the occupants safely.

Two men were later taken to hospital for treatment but their injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

Police say the Belfast Road remains closed between Trooperslane Road and Sloefield Drive as its Collision Investigation Unit examines the scene in daylight for clues as to how it happened.

The road will remain closed for part of today as that investigation continues.

Police have appealed for witnesses or anyone who was travelling along the Belfast Road at the time to contact them on the 101 non-emergency number.

Earlier this week a 81-year-old woman was knocked down and killed by a Volvo articulated lorry in Magherafelt town centre.
