A TEENAGE motorist has died after his car left a South Yorkshire road and hit a tree.

Police are appealing for information after the collision at 11.05pm on Friday, April 27, which involved a black Seat Ibiza car driven by the 19-year-old, on the A19 at Owston, north of Doncaster.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “When the car was about 200 metres north of the junction with the B1220, it appears the driver lost control of the car and it left the carriageway, to its nearside and collided with a tree.

“The 19-year-old man, from Goole, suffered a severe head injury and was taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary last night. He was later transferred to the Royal Hallamshire Hospital where he died early this afternoon.

Anyone who saw the collision or the manner of driving prior to it is urged to call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 1353 of 27 April.
