Police appeal for information over the death of jogger knocked down in Carrickfergus last week

THE name of the pensioner who died after he was struck by a car while out jogging last week has been released by police.

He was 68-year-old Oliver James Wilson from Carrickfergus.

The accident happened on Red Brae Road at about 11:30 am last Friday.

The pensioner died after being involved in a collision with a car in Carrickfergus, Co Antrim, while out running.

The crash involved a silver Peugeot 207 car.

Officers from the PSNI’s Collision Investigation Unit are appealing for witnesses to the accident.

They are particularly keen to hear from the female driver of a silver vehicle travelling directly in front of the silver Peugeot 207 involved in the collision.

Police believe the car, which also contained a child, stopped at the scene of the accident.

However, it left before the arrival of police and traveled on in the direction of Carrickfergus.

The Collision Investigation Unit can be contacted at 0845 600 8000.
