A teenager who was arrested in the wake of a serious crash was yesterday released on bail pending more inquiries.

The 18-year-old man had been apprehended in connection with a two-vehicle collision at Slaughterhouse Road, Whitehead, on Monday.

The incident left a 17-year-old female in a critical condition in hospital. As of last night, she remained in the Royal Victoria Hospital’s intensive care unit.

Police yesterday continued to appeal for anyone who has information about the crash to contact them at Newtownabbey Police Station by dialling 101.
