A 16-year-old girl has died after a van crashed into the central reservation of the A14 in Northamptonshire.

The accident involving one vehicle took place on the A14 near Kettering at 9pm on Friday.

A 16-year-old girl from Loddington involved in the accident died in hospital yesterday (Monday), although police have not yet named the victim.

A 20-year-old man from Market Harborough and a 15-year-old girl from Rothwell also suffered injuries in the crash and were taken to Kettering General Hospital.

In an appeal for witnesses on Monday, a police spokesman said: “A white Renault Traffic van – driven by a 17-year-old boy from Market Harborough – left a disused road to the nearside of the eastbound carriageway of the A14.

“The van came through the hedgerow and came to rest in an upright position by the central reservation.”
