Police investigating a fatal accident in Leeds in which two teenage boys died are appealing for help to trace a potential witness.
They want to find the driver of a silver, transit-sized, panel van pictured below. The van turned off the A62 Gelderd Road at Morley onto the B6126 Harthill Parade before the collision, on Gelderd, at 1.50pm on March 7th.
George Wharton, who was 14, and 13-year-old Rhys Baker were fatally injured when the blue Peugeot 206 they were passengers in left the carriageway and collided with a tree.
We have conducted extensive enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the collision and have spoken to a number of witnesses. We have so far been unable to trace the driver of this vehicle as a potential witness. We believe this vehicle may have been overtaken by the blue Peugeot motor car on Gelderd Road shortly prior to the collision taking place. We would ask that the occupants of the vehicle contact us.
Anyone with information that could assist in identifying the driver of the van is asked to contact the Major Collision Enquiry Team via 101.
