FOUR MEN ARE dead and a teenage girl is in a critical condition in hospital after a head-on collision in the English city of Leeds this morning.

West Yorkshire Police said the four men – aged 18, 19, 19 and 21 – died at the scene on Broadway, the A6120 Leeds Outer Ring Road, near to the junction with Bank Gardens in Horsforth at around 2.40am this morning.

The crash saw a grey Seat Leon car and a private hire vehicle, which was a grey Seat Alhambra people carrier collide. Those who died were among six occupants of the Leon.

Two girls, aged 16 and 17, from that vehicle were taken to hospital with serious injuries. The 16-year-old remains in a critical condition and the 17-year-old’s injuries are not considered life threatening. All those involved are local to the area.

The driver of the Alhambra, a 42-year of man from Bradford, was taken to hospital with injuries that are serious but are not considered life threatening.

Sergeant Fiona Hoodless, of West Yorkshire Police Major Collision Enquiry Team, said: “This is a very tragic incident where four young men have lost their lives and three other people are in hospital with serious injuries.

“The families of those involved are devastated by what has happened and we are doing everything we can to support them at this very difficult time.

Police are appealing for information on the crash.
