A TEENAGER has died in a horror crash after a scrambler bike collided with a vehicle that was carrying young children.
The boy had been riding the suspected stolen scrambler with another 18-year-old male when it crashed into a Volkswagen car in Allerton, Liverpool yesterday evening (December 23).
According to Merseyside Police, the motorcycle was travelling in tandem along Booker Avenue with another scrambler, neither of which had their lights on. The second rider also suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment.
The car that was struck was carrying two young children inside although they are not understood to have suffered any serious injuries.
Following the fatal collision, Chief Inspector Kevin Chatterton released a statement which said:
“Our enquiries into this incident are at an early stage and we are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision, or saw the two scrambler bikes prior to the collision at around 8.40pm.”
