A YEAR since the tragic deaths of two care workers in a horrific crash on the outskirts of Randalstown, the families of the women have welcomed improvements at the junction where they died.
Lorraine Clyde (56) and colleague Michelle McStravick died on the morning of Monday, July 25, 2016 when their vehicle was in collision with a Ford Focus at the junction of Church Road and Moneyrod Road.
Lorraine was a popular lollipop lady at St Comgall's Primary School in Antrim, outside of which floral tributes were left following the tragedy as a mark of respect from pupils and parents.
Michelle McStravick was well-known as a female body-builder and fitness model.
Between them, the women left five children.
Mrs Clyde's former husband William has been working with public representatives and Government agencies to help improve visibility at the accident spot.
Mr Clyde said: "I am very pleased that we have been able to get these improvements, in memory of Lorraine and Michelle."
