A TEENAGER has died after crashing into a wall during a police chase.

Police Conduct cops are investigating after the unnamed 19-year-old driver died from his injuries in Spennymoor, County Durham.

Photos from the scene show heavy police presence

It’s thought the Nissan Primera crashed into a wall in a residential housing estate.

A large police cordon is in place in the area while forensic teams comb the site.

A Durham Police spokesman said: “At around 2.30pm today, officers from Durham Constabulary commenced a vehicle pursuit in the Spennymoor area involving a Nissan Primera.

“Following a brief pursuit, the incident ended in a collision in Central Drive, Middlestone Moor.

“The driver of the vehicle, who is not being named at this stage, suffered fatal injuries.

“We have referred the matter to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).”

One man who lives near the town centre told the Northern Echo: “Just before 3pm I heard a few sirens.

“I went to the back garden to see if I could see anything and I saw two police cars coming from the main street. I could hear other cop cars racing from different parts of the town, they seemed to go through Ox Close, Wood View, and they all seemed to head towards Middlestone Moor.”

IOPC Interim Regional Director David Ford said: “We understand that shortly after 2.30pm a Durham Constabulary marked police car followed a Nissan Primera. After the pursuit the vehicle crashed on Central Drive, Middlestone Moor.

“The 19 year-old man driving the Nissan was fatally injured during the incident. Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family and friends and anyone affected by this sad incident.

“We are attending the scene and the post incident procedures to begin gathering evidence. Anyone who witnessed events leading up to the collision is asked to contact the IOPC on 0800 096 9076 or email: witness@policeconduct.gov.uk.”

It has not yet been confirmed why the pursuit started.
