Motorcyclist dies after crash in Ballycarry - second rider 'left the scene on foot'

A motorcyclist has died following a crash in Ballycarry on Thursday night.

A passing police patrol came across the scene of the collision at around 9.50pm in the Main Street area.

At this time police believe two motorcycles were involved in a collision which caused one of the motorcycles to collide with a parked car.

This tragically resulted in the death of one of the riders who was aged in his 20s.

It is believed the rider of the second motorcycle, who may have sustained injuries in the collision, left the scene on foot and has yet to be located.

Inspector Peter Duncan said: "I would appeal to the rider of the second motorcycle to contact police as they may have information which would assist our enquiries.

"I would also appeal to anyone who saw two motorcycles being driven in the Ballycarry area on Thursday evening or who witnessed the collision to contact police in Larne on 101 quoting reference number 1306 01/06/17."
