Paul Butler expresses sadness at death of Co Antrim teenager
Sinn Féin Councillor for Lagan Valley Paul Butler has this morning extended his sympathy to the family of a 15 year old girl who was knocked down and killed last night between the County Antrim villages of Crumlin and Glenavy.
Speaking this morning Cllr Butler said:
"It is my understanding that the young girl had been making her way from Crumlin to Glenavy when she was struck by a van.
"The road on which the girl had been walking home is extremely dangerous, has poor visibilty and does not have footpaths. This tragedy will no doubt come as a great shock by the people of both villages.
"I want to express my sympathy with the family at this difficult time." ENDS
