Sinn Féin West Tyrone MLA Catherine Kelly has extended condolences to the family and friends of a pedestrian Sean Reid who was struck by a car yesterday in Omagh.

Catherine Kelly MLA said:

"The community was shocked to hear of Sean's tragic death which occurred in the Great Northern Road in Omagh.

"This is the third road tragedy to affect the local area in just 36 hours with four people losing their lives. Whilst we don't yet know all the details of what led up to this terrible tragedy, the fact that another life has been taken on our local roads in such tragic circumstances is a sombre reminder of the importance of road safety and in particular the urgent need for the A5 Dual Carriageway to go ahead.

"I want to commend the emergency services for their efforts in the aftermath of this horrible incident.

"I want to extend my deepest and heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of Mr Reid."
