A teenager who died following a collision in Barnsley has today been formally named as Macey Frudd.

Macey, 16, was a passenger in a silver Vauxhall Astra in the early hours of Sunday 13 January. At around 1.40am that morning, the car was involved in a collision with a tree on Broadway, while travelling in the direction of Dodworth Road.

Macey was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. Three other people travelling inside the car, two men, aged 18 and 19, and a 17-year-old girl suffered minor injuries. All three were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving following the collision. The 19-year-old man and 16-year-old girl have both been released under investigation while the 18-year-old man remains on police bail.

Macey’s family continue to be supported by officers and have asked that their privacy is respected at this incredibly difficult time. They have released this statement: “Macey was a bubbly, fun loving girl who loved life to the full. Without her here her mum, dad and brother feel like their world has ended.”

This Sunday (20 January), there will be an event at the Fleets, Barnsley, at 1pm. Macey’s friends are invited to attend and everyone will release a balloon in honour and memory of her.

Officers investigating the collision remain keen to hear from anyone who saw the Astra in the area prior to the collision, or who saw what happened.
