One man has died and three other people have been injured in a three-car crash in Co Tyrone.

The dead man, who was aged 65, was in a Jaguar which was in collision with two other vehicles on the main road between Newtownstewart and Victoria Bridge, shortly after 4.30pm yesterday afternoon.

A man and woman in a Range Rover and the driver of an Audi A4 were taken to Altnagelvin Hospital, Derry, but although the condition of the woman was described as serious, none of the injuries is believed life threatening.

The PSNI has appealed for witnesses to contact them.

A total of 56 people were killed on Northern Ireland’s roads last year, compared to 48 in 2012 - the lowest on record.
