A man and a woman who died in a fatal road traffic accident have been named by police.

Owen McMullan, 25, and Brigid Wilkinson, 21, were killed in a two-vehicle road traffic collision on the Moyarget Road, near Ballycastle, Co Antrim.

Ms Wilkinson was originally from Ballycastle, while Mr McMullan was from Armoy.

PSNI Constable McKeever said: “The two-vehicle collision took place on the Moyarget Road and involved a blue Honda and silver Ford. It was reported to police just after 4.50pm.

“Sadly, both Brigid and Owen were pronounced dead at the scene.

“We would ask anyone who witnessed the collision, or who may have captured dash cam footage that could assist our inquiries, to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 1274 of 12/02/21.”

A female passenger was taken to hospital where she remains receiving treatment.

The Moyarget Road has since reopened to traffic.
