Burnham-On-Sea teenager who was killed in crash is named by police

The name of the Burnham-On-Sea teenager who was killed in an horrific car accident near Bristol on Tuesday night (November 20th) has been announced by police.

Nathan Edwards, 17, was killed in the crash at Long Ashton on Tuesday night (November 20th).

The former King Alfred School student was travelling in a Peugeot when it collided with a Land Rover at a crossroads on the B3128 at its junction with Providence Lane (pictured).

Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses to come forward following the accident at 6.18pm.

"The Peugeot was travelling in the direction of Longwood Lane towards Providence Lane when it was in collision with a Land Rover at the crossroads. The Land Rover was travelling along the B3128 at Long Ashton towards Clevedon," said police spokesman Dan Mountain.

"Nathan was pronounced dead at the scene. A 10-year-old boy who was the rear seat passenger in the Peugeot – and is not related to the dead man - was seriously injured and taken to Frenchay Hospital."

The woman driver of the Peugeot, who is understood to be Nathan's mother, was taken to the BRI. Two people, who were travelling in the Range Rover, were also taken to the BRI with minor injuries. The police's Road Policing Unit has asked for witnesses to the incident to contact them on 0845 4567000.
