A man has died as a result of a collision outside Ballymena.
The accident occurred at about 9.15am on Main Street, Broughshane, a village to the east of the town.
A member of the public called the ambulance, and described the victim as being a man in his 60s.
The ambulance attended after seven minutes. However, it did not take anybody from the scene of the incident.
At about 5.30pm, the PSNI confirmed that a man in his 60s was dead as a result of the incident.

Police said the road has since reopened.
They added that the man was a pedestrian.
It asked for anyone who has any information to contact 101 quoting reference number 264 16/01/18.
