Police are investigating a “definite link” between the death of a woman in a house and a car crash in Dundonald, Co Down.

A PSNI spokesperson said they received a call at 4:30am on Tuesday of a road traffic collision, involving a black BMW, on the Comber Road, Dundonald close to its junction with the Hillhead Road.

Upon police arrival, they discovered the car at the scene. The occupants of the car were reported to have left the scene in a Suzuki car.

A short time later, police received a report from the ambulance service that they had been called to an address in Ardmore Avenue in Dundonald where a female, believed to have been involved in the collision, was located.

The 27-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene.


Det Insp Snoddy said: “A Suzuki car was discovered a short distance from the property and seven people, four men and three women, who were also at the address have been arrested on suspicion of a number of motoring offences and remain in police custody at this time.

“Our investigation is at an early stage, however, we are investigating a definite link between the collision on the Comber Road, and the discovery of the female at the property in Dundonald.

“We are also investigating reports of damage caused to a property in Lisbane Drive in Newtownards earlier in the morning that may be linked.”
