Three people have died following a two-vehicle road traffic collision in Portglenone this morning (Monday 27th July).
A silver Volkswagen Passat and a black Audi were involved in the collision on Lisnahunshin Road, which was reported at around 10:40am.
Two men and a woman, who are thought to be in their 50s, sadly lost their lives, were all travelling in the Passat and pronounced dead at the scene.
The male driver of the Audi was taken to hospital as a precaution.
A number of roads remain closed at this time including Lisnahunshin Road, Loan Road, Hiltonstown Road and Ballyconnelly Road.
Inspector David Anderson said: "I am appealing to anyone who witnessed this collision, or who may have captured dash cam footage, to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 591 27/07/20."
Local TUV councillor, Alderman Stewart McDonald commented: “My heart breaks for the loved ones of the three people who died as a result of the serious traffic accident in Portglenone this morning.
“One life lost is bad enough but for three to perish in a single incident makes the tragedy all the more heartrending.
”I note that police are appealing for anyone with information about the accident to contact them and I would encourage them to do so by phoning 101”.
