A cyclist was killed in a crash with the driver of a car on Sunday morning in Co Antrim. The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) is now appealing for witnesses to come forward, including those with video footage.

The victim, a 45-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash in Carrickfergus. The fatal collision occurred at 9.30am on the New Line Road.

The cyclist, who was from Newtownabbey, about 15km away, was pronounced dead at the scene, which was then sealed off by the PSNI.

“Shortly before 9.30, it was reported that a cyclist and a car were involved in the incident. Sadly the cyclist, from the Newtownabbey area, died at the scene as a result of his injuries,” said PSNI Sergeant Green. “The New Line in Carrickfergus which was closed, has since reopened.

“Police are working to establish the full circumstances surrounding the collision, and would ask anyone who was in the area at the time, and witnessed what happened, or who may have captured mobile phone or dash-cam footage, to contact them on 101, quoting reference number 587 10/12/23.”
