Young man killed after car overturns on Lepe Road

A man has died after his car overturned in Hampshire.

Police said the driver, aged in his late teens, had lost control of his blue Daewoo Matiz while driving south on Lepe Road, near Langley.

Emergency services found the man inside the car early on Saturday. He was declared dead at the scene.

Police have started an investigation and have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Acting sergeant Dave Dyer said: "At this early stage of the investigation, it is believed no-one else was travelling in the car and no other vehicles were involved in this collision.

"Our initial enquiries are focused on how this car appears to have gone out of control."

The road remained closed for seven hours while police examined the crash.
