Firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to release a 30-year-old man from the vehicle. He was conveyed to hospital by ambulance. Fire crew from Ballyclare station attended the incident.”

The Ballyrobert Road was closed in both directions between the Lower Size Hill Road and the Longshot following the incident. The road has since reopened to traffic.
