Horrific video footage emerges of car tumbling through garden

Footage of a shocking car crash in Co Antrim has been released in a bid to urge drivers to "slow down in the area at all times".

TUV councillor Stewart McDonald released the yesterday which shows a car travelling along the Townhill Road in Portglenone before it strikes a wall in a housing development.

It then hits another vehicle before tumbling across a garden.

Police said two people were taken to hospital for treatment to injuries following the crash on Saturday afternoon.

Mr McDonald said the footage is a "wakeup call to us all".

"What if a child had been out playing in what they had every right to expect was a safe space? We could, so easily, be talking about a life lost," he said.

"I would appeal to everyone to slow down in the area at all times but to take special care during the frosty weather when the roads can be treacherous. There is a need for everyone to take heed to the warning which this film provides. Otherwise a tragedy is only a matter of time".

A PSNI spokesman said they are aware of a two-vehicle road traffic collision in the Mount Pleasant area of Portglenone at around 1pm on Saturday.

"Officers attended the scene along with colleagues from the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service," he said.

"Two people - the driver and passenger of one of cars - were taken to hospital for treatment to injuries.
