Loss that’s ‘never going to go away’ thumbnail

A CORONER has promised that he will press for road safety improvements on the outskirts of Randalstown after the families of two care workers who died in a horror crash in 2016 warned that more fatalities will occur unless action is taken at the spot where they died.
Lorraine Clyde (56) and colleague Michelle McStravick died on the morning of Monday July 25 2016 when their work vehicle, a Citroen C1 was in collision with a Ford Focus at the junction of Church Road and Moneyrod Road.
At the inquest into their deaths, emotional family members heard coroner Joe McCrisken pledge that he would write to the permanent secretary of the Department for Infrastructure outlining his 'concerns' about the junction.
Antrim mother-of-five Lorraine was a popular lollipop lady at St Comgall's Primary School in the town, while Michelle McStravick from Randalstown was well-known as a champion body-builder and fitness model.
