POLICE IN THE North are appealing for information following a fatal road traffic crash yesterday evening.

At around 9.50pm on Main Street in Ballycarry, Co Antrim, a police patrol came across the scene of the collision.

Inspector Peter Duncan said in a statement: “At this time, we believe that two motorcycles were involved in a collision which in turn has caused one of the motorcycles to collide with a parked car.

“This has tragically resulted in the death of one of the riders, a man aged in his 20s,” he said.

Duncan said that the second motorcyclist, who may have sustained injuries, left the scene on foot and has yet to be found.

Police are appealing for this person to come forward as soon as possible to help them with their inquiries.

They are also appealing for any witnesses to the incident to come forward, as well as anyone who have seen two motorcycles being driven in the Ballycarry area.
