The man killed in a Co Antrim road crash near Crumlin on Thursday was a 23-year-old from Belfast.

Michael Cusick was killed as a result of the single vehicle incident just before 11pm.

The Randox Road and Nutts Corner Road were closed to traffic for a number of hours but have since reopened.

Sinn Fein councillor Anne Marie Logue said the community had been left stunned by the death.

“Any death on our roads is one too many and a tragedy for all those involved, but for someone so young it has added sadness.

“This young man was very popular and his death will be felt throughout this community.

“My thoughts are with the young man’s family and friends at this difficult and sad time.”

Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the officers at Antrim Police Station or the collision investigation unit on 101.
