Teen killed, three others badly injured in car rollover

ONE teenager has been killed and three other youths – including a 12-year-old boy – have been seriously injured in a horror crash in country New South Wales.

Police said the group was travelling in a car that left Castledoyle Road at Castle Doyle and rolled about 11km east of Armidale shortly after 5pm on Saturday.

Sadly, the 18-year-old man driving the vehicle sustained life-threatening injuries and was later pronounced dead at Armidale Hospital, police said.


Three passengers – a 17-year-old girl and two boys aged 14 and 12 – were all trapped in the vehicle for several hours before they were freed.

Once they were cut from the wreckage, the three surviving occupants were taken to Armidale Hospital, all with various serious injuries.

Police, along with the Forensic Crash Unit, are investigating the circumstances surrounding the fatality and will prepare a report for the Coroner.
