A 22-year-old man is being sought by police over a fatal crash in Hertfordshire.

Jason Crane, 40, of Croxley Green, died when the white van he was a passenger in collided with a silver Audi in Tylers Way, Watford on 16 July.

Three men allegedly left the scene before emergency services arrived.

Police want to speak to Thomas O'Leary, known as Tommy, of Carmelite Road in Harrow, west London, about the incident.

He has connections in Watford and Bushey, police said.

Two 16-year-old boys and an 18-year-old man from Harrow; a man, 19, from Dunstable and a 45-year-old from Watford have been arrested and bailed over the crash.

Insp Andy Piper, said: "If anyone knows of Thomas's whereabouts or if anyone has any information about him, I would ask you to get in contact with us as soon as possible.

"This devastating collision has robbed a man of his life and a family of a loving father and husband, and we are determined to bring those responsible to justice.

"I am also still appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision, who may have seen the white van and silver Audi travelling along the road, or who saw the three young men walking away from the scene, to get in contact with us as soon as possible.

"Although arrests have been made, we are still looking for people who may have been involved in the collision and need further information from members of the public to help us in our investigations."
