Police confirm man has died following hit-and-run collision in Co Antrim

Detectives investigating a serious hit-and-run road traffic collision in the Mosside area of Ballycastle can confirm a male in his 20s has died.

Detective Sergeant Colhoun said:

"The collision on the Moyarget Road was reported to police on Sunday, 21 st August around 10.20pm.

"A man and a woman had been walking along the road when there was a collision

with a van. The driver of the van drove off from the scene without stopping to check

on the injured people.

"Sadly, the male, 23-year-old Stefan Morrow, from the Coleraine area has since

passed away as a result of the injuries he sustained due to the collision. The woman sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

"To date, we have arrested two males in their 30s, one who has been released

unconditionally and a second who has been released on bail, pending further

enquiries as part of our investigation.

"At this time I would like to make a renewed appeal for information and ask any

witnesses to come forward to police.

"We are especially keen to hear from anyone who was on the Moyarget Road

between 10pm and 10.20pm on Sunday, 21st August and who may have dash-cam or any mobile footage of the collision which could help our investigation.
