A 17-year-old has died a week after suffering life-threatening injuries when a car overturned into a field.

Emergency services were called to Station Road, near the Middleton junction, near King’s Lynn, shortly before 8pm last Wednesday.

Police attended following reports of a single vehicle collision involving a dark Ford Fiesta.

The care left the road on a bend on Station Road, near Keeper’s Cottage.

The teenager, a passenger in the car, was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital with life-threatening injuries, where he died a week later.

The driver of the car and another passenger, both aged 17, suffered minor injuries.

The driver was arrested and taken to King’s Lynn police investigation centre.

Officers ask anyone who saw the crash or who has information about it to contact the Swaffham roads and armed policing team on 101, quoting incident number 432 of April 22.
