Police appeal after teenage girl dies in road accident

North Wales Police are asking anyone who witnessed a road traffic accident this morning in which an 18-year-old girl died to get in touch.

The accident happened at 0815 in Abergele Road, Bodelwyddan and involved a red Mercedes Box van and a white Vauxhall Corsa and a pedestrian.

The teenager girl died at the scene say police and her family have been informed. The driver of the Vauxhall Corsa sustained serious but not life threatening injuries and the van driver was arrested in connection with the collision.

Police are asking eyewitnesses to call 101 and quote reference No. P194123 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

A full investigation will now take place and so I’d like to hear from anyone who was driving or walking through Bodelwyddan just after 8am this morning and witnessed the collision.
