Man (29) dies after single-car crash in Coleraine

Reginald Diamond was from the Upperlands area, police say

A 29-year-old man has died in hospital after a collision outside Coleraine, Co Londonderry.

The one-vehicle crash happened on the Curragh Road close to Culcrow Primary School at about 6.30am on Saturday.

Police have named the driver of the silver BMW who was killed in the collision as Reginald Diamond from the Upperlands area.

He was taken to hospital in a critical condition after the crash but later died from his injuries.

The PSNI has appealed for anyone who was travelling on the Curragh Road at the time of the crash and who witnessed the collision to contact officers in Coleraine or the Collision Investigation Unit on 101 quoting reference number 481 of 18/03/17.

The road has reopened to traffic.

Mr Diamond's death brings to 11 the number of people who have died on roads in Northern Ireland so far this year.

It comes after a 52-year-old motorist died following a two-vehicle road collision in Ballywalter on Friday morning.

Dean Weir was the driver of a white Suzuki Alto that was involved in the fatal collision with a blue Nissan Micra on the Dunover Road.
