PSNI Inspector Mick Wood said: "An investigation into the circumstances of the collision is ongoing and whilst I am appealing for any witnesses to the collision to contact police, I would specifically appeal to the driver of a white van, who turned off the main carriageway and onto the Kildowney Road a short time before the collision, to get in touch, as I believe they may have information which could assist our investigation.
