Two Children Seriously Injured In Crash
Two children are in a serious condition in hospital following a road crash.
It happened at around 2.30pm on Thursday on the B780 Dalry to Kilbirnie road, near to its junction with the B784, Ayrshire.
The collision involved a black Chevrolet Spark and a red Vaxuhall Corsa.
An eight-year-old girl and four-year-old boy who were in the Corsa being driven by a 28-year-old woman were taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and are said to be in a serious condition.
The 28-year-old woman was also taken to hospital and is described by medical staff as stable.
A 66-year-old woman who was driving the Chevrolet and her passenger, a 32-year-old man, were both taken to Crosshouse Hospital for minor injuries.
The B780 was closed to allow officers to carry our investigations into the full circumstances.
Anyone who witnessed the collision or who may have any other information which may assist the enquiry is asked to contact police on 101.
