Teenager dies during police car chase in Hertfordshire
An investigation is under way after a teenager died when the car he was a passenger in crashed during a police pursuit in Hertfordshire.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is looking into the incident in Royston on Monday.
The IPCC said officers in a marked car began the pursuit on the A505, when two cars performed U-turns in front of them and one, a Citroen Saxo, sped off.
It overturned in Royston town centre and the 16-year-old died at the scene.
A man was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Hertfordshire Police referred the incident to the IPCC because the Saxo was being pursued by a police car prior to the collision.
Investigators were deployed to the scene to begin collecting evidence and start an independent investigation.
Hertfordshire Police have begun a parallel investigation into the fatal collision.
Three teenagers have been arrested and bailed as part of their inquiries.
