Mary O'Neill (11), who was knocked down in Co Antrim on her way home from school

AN 11-year-old girl last night remained in a critical condition in hospital more than a week after she was knocked down in Co Antrim on her way home from school.

Mary O'Neill and her 14-year-old brother Fintan had just got off a school bus when they were struck by a white Audi A3 car on the Staffordstown Road, between Randalstown and Toome, at around 4.40pm last Tuesday.

The siblings were taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.

Mary, who is thought to have suffered head injuries, remained in a critical condition yesterday while her brother, whose injuries are believed to include a broken leg, was stable.

The brother and sister are pupils at St Patrick's College in Maghera, Co Derry.

In the aftermath of the collision, the school asked for prayers for the students.
