The funeral for a young woman who was killed in accident at a “deathtrap junction” is due to take place on Monday.

Karla Cameron, 25, died when she was involved in the two-car collision at 9.50am between Ballymena and Antrim on Thursday. She had been taken to hospital but died that evening.

Karla Cameron is a distant relative of DUP councillor Sam Hanna, representing the Braid area of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council.

Alderman Hanna said she had been from Kells, and had married husband David about three years ago.

He said the couple did not have children.

A thanksgiving service is to be held in Ballee Baptist Church, to the south of Ballymena, on Monday at 2.30pm.

Alderman Hanna said there had been “an awful lot of accidents” at the same spot on the main Lisnevenagh Road (A26), near the junction with Woodgreen Road.

A day earlier, North Antrim MLA Jim Allister said that the accident served as a “continuing failure to seriously address the fundamental issues at this death-trap junction”.

The PSNI have asked that anyone who saw a black Audi A6 or a blue Seat Leon in the area between 9.30am and 10am contacts them by dialling the non-emergency number 101.
