A man's died and three others have been injured after a car left the road and crashed into a garden wall and telegraph pole in Billericay.
The collision happened when the driver of a black Ford Fiesta appears to have lost control of the car while travelling along Western Road shortly before 2am on Saturday (April 21st) and struck a wall. The vehicle then overturned.
18-year-old Dale Carlier, from Coram Green in Hutton, was taken to Basildon University Hospital, but died a short time later.
Three other male occupants of the car were also conveyed to the same hospital. A 20-year-old from the Brentwood area sustained head and arm injuries. A 20-year-old from the Romford area sustained arm injuries. A 17-year-old from the Brentwood area sustained pelvic and facial inquiries. All three people remain in stable conditions at the hospital.
At this stage, police have yet to establish who the driver of the car was.
A section of the road was closed for approximately four hours while forensic collision investigators carried out their enquiries.
Any witnesses to the crash are urged to contact Essex Police's Serious Collision Unit on 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
