Two 12-year-old girls were knocked down and injured while on their way to school in Bangor today.
The schoolgirls were understood to have been hit by a car in the Castlepark Avenue area just before 9am.
They were treated at the scene by an ambulance crew before being taken to the Ulster Hospital at Dundonald.
A police spokesman said one girl suffered a broken leg and the other a broken ankle. Both are said to be in a stable condition.
Castlepark Avenue and Dufferin Avenue were closes to traffic for a period while police examined the scene of the accident.
