A 30-YEAR-OLD man has died following a collision between a car and a lorry in Co Derry this morning. 

Police were alerted at 5.20am of the incident that happened on the Glenshane Road between Dungiven and Maghera. 

A 30-year-old man, named as Conor Devine, was the driver of the silver-coloured Volvo car involved in the collision with the tanker lorry.
