Man (57) left to die after collision in Ballymena

Inset: 57-year-old John Corr

Detectives are appealing for information and witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision in the Cushendall Road area of Ballymena.


Detective Inspector Finlay said:

"Officers attended the scene of the collision, which was reported on Sunday, 28th August at around 10.20pm.


"At this stage, we believe a male, called John Corr, aged 57, was walking along the road when there was a collision with a car. A male and female, who we believe were occupants of the car, then stopped before making off after realising the male was seriously injured.


"Mr Corr sadly passed away at the scene.


"We believe that the offending vehicle was potentially a silver coloured BMW and enquiries are ongoing to locate the driver and passenger.


"We are keen to speak to anyone who has information, particularly if you have any mobile phone or dashcam footage which could be of interest in our investigation or if you noticed a BMW car in the Ballymea area around 10.20pm. We can be contacted on 101, quoting reference 2134 28/08/22.”

Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigian has expressed condolences following the death of Mr Corr.


The North Antrim MLA said:

“The community is in shock after a man died following fatal road traffic collision in the Cushendall Road area of Ballymena.


“My thoughts are with this man’s family and friends at this sad and difficult time.

“I would urge anyone with information about the collision to bring it forward to the police.”
