Three women were hit by a car which was part of a Twelfth parade in Belfast yesterday.

The incident took place in the south of the city. Police received a report of a road traffic collision in the Lisburn Road area at around 12.45pm.

A PSNI spokesperson added: “Three females, one aged in her 30s and two aged in their 40s, received minor injuries when they were struck by a grey Peugeot car that was travelling as part of the parade.”

The NI Ambulance Service confirmed that one of the women was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital with a knee injury.

It has been reported that the car had lurched forward and struck the three women. An eyewitness told the BBC it appeared to be an accident.
