A man was rescued from a burning vehicle by an off-duty fire officer following a three vehicle road traffic collision in Ballymena on Sunday evening, 5th May.


It is understood the outcome of the collision would have been much worse if not for the brave actions of the fire officer.



Emergency Services rushed to the scene of the incident which occurred after 6:00pm on the Larne Road Link between the Bridge Street junction and the roundabout at Sainsbury’s.
