9:26am 14th July 2013

A 16-year-old boy sadly died when the car he was travelling in was in collision with another car on the A645 Drax Link Road close to Rawcliffe in East Yorkshire.

The scene of the collision was between the power station and Rawcliffe Road.

The teenager was travelling in a red Fiat Punto as a front passenger when the collision occurred just after 1820hrs on Friday 12 July with a grey Ford Focus C-Max. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Punto, a 25-year-old Goole man, was taken to Leeds Royal Infirmary with serious injuries.

The driver of the Ford Focus, a 40-year-old loal man and his six-year-old son who was travelling in the front passenger seat, were both taken to Doncaster Hospital for treatment for serious injuries.

The Punto was travelling from the direction of Drax towards the roundabout on Rawcliffe Road when it was involved in the head on collision with the Ford Focus that was travelling in the opposite direction.

Police are seeking witnesses and are particularly keen to trace the driver of a small white car which was travelling in front of the red Fiat, prior to the collision. 

Anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the small white car and the red Punto before the collision should contact Humberside Police quoting log 633 of the 12 July 2013 on the non emergency 101 number.
