The young woman sustained cuts and lacerations, and was subsequently taken to the Emergency Department at Antrim Area Hospital for treatment.

The woman's husband has appealed for help in identifying the other vehicle describing it as a "medium sized black car". He said:

"My wife was driving home from work through Rathkenny and was travelling on the Cushendall Road, between Wilson's of Rathkenny and Donnelly's.

"There was a black car, though we are unsure of the model, coming round the bend and travelling on the wrong side of the road. The other vehicle hit my wife's car but didn't stop and drove on.

"There was several cars behind the black car so we are hoping they may have got details from the number plate."
