Did you see fatal M18 collision?
Officers are asking witnesses to come forward following a collision on the M18 on Saturday evening (13 May), in which a 17-year-old boy died.
At about 7.30pm, a black BMW, travelling along the M18 towards Doncaster from junction one, reportedly left the carriageway and ended up on its roof.
A 17-year-old boy from Oldham, who is believed to have been a passenger, was thrown from the car as a result of the collision and subsequently collided with a blue Citroen Picasso, travelling in the same direction. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
His family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers during this incredibly difficult time.
Two men travelling in the car, aged 18 and 19, suffered minor injuries.
Police want to hear from anyone who saw the BMW prior to the collision and believe the driver of a blue articulated lorry with a yellow roof may have witnessed the collision.
If you saw what happened, or have dashcam footage of the incident, please call 101 quoting incident number 989 of 13 May 2017.
The two men from the BMW who suffered minor injuries were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and have been released under investigation.
