A man has been killed following a single vehicle RTC in Silverbridge early this morning.

Police can confirm that a man, aged in his 40s, has died following a single vehicle road traffic collision in Silverbridge early this morning, Wednesday 03 February.

He was the driver of a van that was involved in a collision on the New Road at its junction with Legmoylan Road.

The collision was reported to police shortly after 5.40am this morning.

Inspector Lorraine Dobson is appealing for anyone who was travelling on the New Road this morning and who witnessed the collision to contact local police in Newtownhamilton or the Collision Investigation Unit in Sprucefield on the non-emergency number 101.

The road remains closed and diversions are in place.

This is the latest tragedy on our roads this year. 20-year-old Shannon Weir lost her life last week, days after 17-year-olds Mark Hutcheson and Andrew Gass were killed on their way to college.
