Young football fan killed in fatal car accident while twin brother's condition critical

Ollie was pronounced dead at the scene, while his brother William was airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary where he remains in critical condition. Their friend Max Batey, 18, who was also in the car has been taken to hospital with severe injuries according to The Sun.

The collision happened last Saturday after they crashed into a BMW X1 travelling in the opposite direction on the A629.

The road was shut down for eight hours by Police who are now appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Ollie’s dad Jeb has paid tribute to his “charming” son in a statement.

“Fly high young man and keep a watch over us.

“Your happy smiling, charming, endearing character will never ever leave those enough to have been in your company.”

Since the accident, his family have already raised £5,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance in a fundraising appeal.

This is the third fatality to have occurred in the area, as only 24 hours before two people died in a collision on the A59 Broughton.
