The boys, believed to be around six years of age, were taken to the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.

One of the boys is in a critical condition and is being treated in the intensive care unit, while the second child is understood to have received non-life threatening injuries.

The road was closed for a time, but reopened later that evening.
