A 45-year-old biker has died after his motorcycle collided with a bus on the Portaferry Road.
Paramedics and the Air Ambulance were called to the crash near Newtownards on Sunday afternoon - but no-one was taken from the scene to hospital.
Meanwhile, an unconscious driver was pulled from a burning car on the same stretch of road after a separate collision on Saturday.
William McMullen from Rathfriland was passing at the time and rushed to help, risking his own life.
The 52-year-old father-of-two is a motorcycle racing marshall and has first aid training.
William's been praised for his bravery by police, but says he's no hero.
However, his wife Hazel, daughter Courtney and son William junior have a different view. They say he's always been their hero and always will be.
