A MAN and woman in their 20s have died in a road traffic collision in the Glarryford area.
PSNI Inspector Marty Mullan said: “The two-vehicle collision on the Duneany Road in Glarryford was reported to us at approximately 2:05pm and involved a yellow Citroen and white Honda.
“Officers along with other emergency services attended and sadly the female driver and male passenger of the Citroen were pronounced dead at the scene.
“The female driver of the Honda was taken to hospital.
“We are appealing to anyone who may have been on the Duneany Road this afternoon, prior to or around the time of the collision, or anyone who recorded any dashcam or mobile phone footage that could potentially help our investigation to get in touch with us.
“The investigation team can be contacted by calling 101, quoting reference number CCS 853 190220.”
The Duneany Road remains closed this evening.
It is the latest tragedy on the roads in north Antrim.
A man was recently killed in a collision near Dunloy and a man died in a collision on the Drones Road outside Cloughmills.
Bannside TUV councillor Timothy Gaston said: “I am deeply saddened to hear that the accident on the Duneany Road, Glarryford, has resulted in the death of a young man and woman. One can only imagine the pain which has been visited upon their loved ones.
“The air ambulance along with ambulances crews, Fire Brigade and police were tasked to the scene but unfortunately there was nothing they could do.
“We do not know the circumstances of this accident but once again it is a reminder of how dangerous the roads can be.
“I would appeal for all road users to take extra care when travelling. We have already had more than enough tragedy and I don’t want to see any more lives cut short.”
