Arrests for dangerous driving after Belfast road death

By Neil Logan

Two arrests have been made in connection with the fatal road traffic accident in Belfast which took the life of an 18-year-old student.

Enda Dolan from Killyclogher in Omagh was knocked down by a white Renault van on the Malone Road in Belfast at around 2.25am. The van was reported to have been stopped some distance away from where the accident took place, though it is not yet understood if the driver was attempting to flee the scene. Two men in the van were treated for their injuries at hospital, and one of them, aged 19, has been arrested on suspicion of driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and on causing death by dangerous driving. The other, aged 29, has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The number of fatalities on Northern Ireland roads this year continues to increase well beyond that of previous years, with PSNI efforts to clamp down on motoring offences seemingly having little impact.
