Teenager killed in North Yorkshire crash
A TEENAGER was killed and two others were injured in a crash on a North Yorkshire Road last night.
The crash, between a Seat heading towards Whitby, and a Vauxhall Corsa and a Ford Fiesta heading towards Cleveland, on the A171 at about 6.45pm, close to Ugthorpe Lodge.
A North Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said the 18-year-old man driving the Seat and the woman in the Corsa, were involved in a head-on crash, and both suffered serious injuries.
The spokeswoman said the teenager, from Whitby, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The 60-year-old woman driving the Vauxhall Corsa was taken to James Cook Hospital, Middlesbrough with serious injuries, where she remains. The woman driving the Ford Fiesta is believed to have suffered minor injuries, after she collided with the rear of the Corsa and took evasive action.
Police closed a stretch of the road until 3am today, and have urged anyone who saw the crash or any of the vehicles prior to the incident to phone North Yorkshire Police on 101 or email email@example.com
