South Antrim DUP MP William McCrea said the last 24 hours, in which three people have died on NI's roads, have seen families plunged into great sadness.
"I extend my sympathy to them and assure all the family circles involved that they are foremost in my prayers.
"In the case of Robin Steenson, I have known that family for decades since I was first involved in elected politics. I have many fond memories of Robin and I'm deeply saddened by his sudden passing.
"As MP for Antrim, my heart pours out for the family of the one-year-old child who was killed this morning. As a father and grandfather, I know how precious these little lives are and I can't begin to understand the grief that has visited this family.
"I also sympathise with the family of the 38 year-old lorry-driver who was killed in Coalisland on this tragic day," he added.
