Police can confirm a man and a woman in their 20s have died in a road traffic collision in the Ballymena area.

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.

DUP MLA Maurice Bradley has sent his condolences to the families of those involved in the accident at Glarryford today.

Bradley, who was travelling along the road at the time of the accident, described the conditions as ‘difficult’ with surface spray making visibility poor.

He said: “I send my sympathies to the families of those who have tragically lost their lives, my thoughts and prayers are with them at this very difficult time.”
