TWO teenagers have died following a car crash in south Warwickshire.

A Ford Fiesta and a Fiat 500 collided on the B4035 Campden Road, near to Portobello Crossroads, close to Shipston, just after 4pm on Friday.

A 17-year-old boy and a 16 year-old girl who were both travelling in the Fiesta, were airlifted to hospital, but both later died.

A 16-year-old boy in the same vehicle who was also airlifted to hospital remains in a life-threatening condition.

The fourth occupant of the Fiesta, a 17-year-old boy, is reported to be in a stable condition following surgery.

Three occupants of the Fiat – a woman and two children – all sustained serious injuries and are in a stable condition in hospital.

Insp Michael Huntley from Warwickshire Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “This is a tragic incident involving several young people, and our thoughts go out to the families and friends of those who have lost their lives, to those who have been injured, and to the local community who may have been affected by this incident.

“Specially-trained family liaison officers are currently supporting the families involved, and we would ask that the privacy of those involved is respected at this difficult time.

“Specialist officers are carrying out a detailed investigation to piece together the circumstances of the collision, and we are working with our partner agencies and the local authority.

“We would ask anyone who has not yet spoken to us to please get in touch, especially if you were travelling in the area and may have any information or dashcam footage. Anyone with any information is asked to call Warwickshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 248 of 21 April 2023.”
