The blue Honda Civic crashed when it left the Glenside Road in Hannastown at around 1.50am. The 25-year-old driver was arrested.

Only minutes beforehand, one of the vehicles involved rammed a police car on the nearby Rock Road.

The Northern Ireland Police Ombudsman has been called in to investigate the incident.
