A Co Antrim woman has died in hospital after a one-vehicle road accident yesterday morning.

The victim, who is understood to have been in her 50s, was named locally as Jennifer Kane from Dervock.

The accident happened on the Moycraig Road in Ballymoney, between Mosside and Dervock, just before 8.25am.

Ms Kane, who was the only occupant of a black Vauxhall Corsa, was taken to hospital but later passed away from her injuries.

She is the ninth person to die on Northern Ireland's roads this year.

Her heartbroken son Brent Kiloh Kane broke the news of his loss to friends on his Facebook page.

He also wrote a moving tribute to his beloved mother.

"Sadly this morning I got the worst news imaginable, that my mammy had passed away after an awful car accident," he said.

"Like I've said from a child till (sic) now. I love you to the moon & back. You'll be missed by us all. Rest easy beautiful."

Ballymoney DUP councillor John Finlay said: "I want to offer my sincere condolences to the Kane family as they try to come to terms with their loss at this difficult time.

"I would also call for an investigation into the area of road where the collision occurred, in case there is anything that can be done to prevent something like this happening in future."

The PSNI confirmed that a woman had died "from injuries sustained in a single-vehicle road traffic collision on the Moycraig Road in Ballymoney" yesterday morning.

Inspector O'Brien also issued an appeal for information.

"Anyone who was travelling on the Moycraig Road this morning and who witnessed the collision or saw the black Vauxhall Corsa involved prior to the collision is asked to contact local officers in Coleraine or the collision investigation unit on 101, quoting reference 192 of 14/03/19," the inspector said.
