An elderly man has died following a two-car collision outside Moneymore in Co Tyrone.

The incident happened in the early hours of Wednesday morning on the Cookstown Road in the town.

Police are trying to ascertain whether the victim, a pensioner in his 70s, died as a result of injuries suffered in the collision, or from natural causes.

The motorist who died has not yet been named by the authorities.

It’s the second fatal road traffic incident in the area in a week.

Last Friday, motorcyclist David Brown (54) died after suffering a heart attack while riding his machine on the town’s Magherafelt Road.
