Officers from the Major Collision Investigation Unit are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision which occurred in Settle on Friday night (Friday, 3 December 2021).
The collision involved a single vehicle which collided with a wall near to Settle Golf club at approximately 9.15pm.
The 18-year old front seat passenger of the car was pronounced dead at the scene. The 20-year-old driver was taken to hospital with serious injuries. Sadly, the driver later died in hospital. Our thoughts are with the families of both males, they are currently being supported by specialist officers.
Police are appealing to anyone who was in the area and who may have seen the vehicle prior to the collision to come forward. Officers are particularly keen to hear from anyone with dashcam footage who was travelling along the B6480 towards Settle at approximately 9pm.
