SDLP East Derry MLA Gerry Mullan has said that the community in Coleraine has been devastated by the death of Reece Meenan in a hit and run on Saturday evening.
He said: “My deepest sympathies go to the family of Reece Meenan who tragically lost his life after being knocked down in a hit and run on Saturday. We cannot imagine the pain and suffering that they are enduring, losing such a bright and talented boy at an unfairly young age.
“In the run up to the Christmas period, incidents like this become even greater tragedies.
“I would ask that we all remember the Meenan family in our prayers and that anyone with any further information about the incident comes forward to the police.”
