Death of elderly motorist in Co Antrim being treated as fatal road crash
The death of a motorist who died after the car he was driving crashed into a wall in Co Antrim is being treated as a fatal road accident.
The accident happened on the Ballynure Road in Ballyearl on Friday morning.
The man- who was in his 80s and came from the Ballyclare area- was at the wheel of a brown Vauxhall Meriva which collided with a wall at around 11am.
Police were initially unsure whether the man died of natural causes or as a result of injuries sustained during the crash.
However, a post mortem has confirmed the driver died as a result of the crash and his death is not being treated as a sudden death.
Police re-appealed for information on Monday as a result of the new information.
Constable Michael McNee said, “I would ask that anyone who was driving on the Ballynure Road on Friday morning and witnessed the collision, has dash-cam footage or who noticed the car being driven in the area to contact officers at Collision Investigation Unit on 101 with any information quoting reference number 580 26/07/19.”
