Speaking at the scene, Keith Lumley, a chief superintendent at South Yorkshire Police confirmed that the driver of the vehicle was 16, the female passenger was 15 and the male passenger was 14.
‘What we do know is that the road was cold, wet and probably icy. For some reason the driver lost control of the vehicle and it has collided with the tree across the road.
Addressing the fact that two fatal crashes, claiming the lives of six teenagers in total, had taken place in such close proximity to one another in just over a month, he added:
‘It is an unfortunate coincidence. I don't think it is a cultural thing.
Nah, course it isn’t. The car involved was a Honda Civic. You know, same as here.
