Police have confirmed that the accident which led to the death of a twelve year old ha been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).
Following enquiries after our earlier statement regarding the fatal road traffic collision on Rooley Lane Bradford we have been asked to clarify some points.
In relation to the initial stopping of the vehicle: The vehicle had stopped in the lay-by on Rooley Lane. As officers got out of their vehicle to speak to the driver the car immediately made off at speed along Rooley Lane. Officers got back into their car and followed it.
The collision happened moments later.Because the collision happened immediately after police contact, with officers in initial pursuit, the IPCC were contacted last night (Saturday 6 October) and one of their investigators attended the scene to undertake their independent assessment into the police role.
