A teenager who died following a road crash in Co Tyrone was Ryan Mahoney, from Augher.

The 17-year-old was a passenger in a black-coloured Audi which was involved in a head-on collision with a white Mercedes at around 8.25pm on Sunday.

The incident happened on the Clanabogan Road in Omagh and the road has since reopened.

Three other people - a man and two women - who were in the Audi were taken to hospital along with the female driver of the other vehicle.

Their injuries are not thought to be life threatening at present.

The PSNI has urged anyone who witnessed the crash to speak to police on 101, quoting reference 1815 21/07/19.

West Tyrone Sinn Fein MP Orfhlaith Begley said the incident has shocked the local community.

"Hopefully the other people injured in this incident can make a full recovery as soon as possible," she said.

"My thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friends of the young man who died at this sad time."
