Sinn Féin South Antrim MLA Declan Kearney has expressed his shock following news of a serious road traffic accident on the Dundrod Road, at Nutts Corner.

Mr Kearney said,

“I had just left a meeting this afternoon with the local PSNI District Commander and her senior team which was also attended by local Cllr Anne Marie Logue, when I received word of a serious road traffic collision just past Nutts Corner, on the Dundrod Road. 

“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.

“The Air Ambulance was deployed, which is very concerning.

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