A 19-year-old man has died in a two-car collision in Co Derry in the early hours of this morning.

Michael Óg McKenna from Maghera, died in the collision on the Moneysharvan Road between Maghera and Swatragh.

Mr McKenna was the driver of a red Audi that was involved in a crash with a grey Audi shortly after 2.30am.

The female driver of the other car and two teenage boys who were passengers in the car were injured and taken to hospital for treatment.

Police have appealed to witnesses to the crash or anyone who saw either of the cars prior to the collision to come forward.

Officers are particularly keen to speak with anyone with dash cam footage.

Mid Ulster MP Francie Molloy said the local community had been shocked by the crash.

"Any death on our roads is a tragedy, particularly when someone so young loses their life," said the Sinn Fein representative.

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