A man has died following a crash on the Saintfield road in Crossgar.
The single vehicle collision was reported shortly after 4am today.
The PSNI has appealed for witnesses, or anyone who was on the road before 4am, to get in touch.
No further details regarding the victim are being released at this time.
South Down MP Margaret Ritchie said: " Undoubtedly, his family and friends will be suffering immeasurable grief and the local community in the greater Crossgar area will wrap them in a warm embrace and support them in whatever practical way they can.
Death is always tragic whenever it takes place, but it is more alarming, numbing and poignant when it happens abruptly as a result of an accident”.
