Police have confirmed that a man has died following a two vehicle crash on the Derrygonnelly Road, Enniskillen.

The crash happened around 2pm on Saturday afternoon.

The man becomes the 40th male to have died on Northern Ireland roads so far this year, out of a total of 55 fatalities.

The PSNI said the dead man was in a car with another person who was injured.

There were two other people in the other vehicle who were also injured.

His death follows that of a 23-year-old Co Tyrone woman who died in a single car crash on the Victoria Road, between Londonderry and Strabane.

Caoimhe O'Brien was described as a "gem" by her friends and family.

Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward with information about the  Derrygonnelly Road crash.

Inspector Keith Hicks said: “I would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed this collision, which occurred at approximately 2.00pm on Saturday, 15 October to please contact police at Enniskillen on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 708 15/10/16.”
