“Officers attended the scene along with colleagues from the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service, and Northern Ireland Ambulance Service.
“Four people were taken to hospital for treatment to their injuries. One woman remains in a critical condition at this time.”
The ambulance service confirmed that all four people injured in the collision had been taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.
