Crash Teenager Named

Ryan Youngman, of Middleton Road, Gorleston, was the front seat passenger in a Ford Fiesta when it was involved in a collision with a wall in Caister High Street at approximately 12.10am.

He'd been the front seat passenger and was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Just before the collision, the car failed to stop for police officers who were in the area responding to reports of an aggravated burglary, but the Police are telling HEART that the car was not being pursed when the crash happened.

It has since been established that the vehicle had been reported stolen from the Bradwell area two days earlier. 

The 17-year-old male driver suffered serious injuries and the rear seat passengers, an 18-year-old male and 17-year-old female, suffered minor injuries. All of them are receiving hospital treatment and have been arrested on suspicion of burglary. 

Norfolk Constabulary has referred the matter to the Independent Police Complaints Commission which is normal procedure.
