Jack Robinson - Killamarsh fatal RTC - South Yorks 938-26-12-16

Officers from South Yorkshire Police who are now investigating the collision on Station Road in Killamarsh, that happened on Boxing Day, have issued a further appeal for witnesses.

Twenty-year-old Jack Robinson (pictured), from Killamarsh, died in hospital on Tuesday 27 December following injuries sustained in the crash.

At about 9.30pm, Mr Robinson was driving a grey Renault Clio along Station Road when the car struck the kerb, causing it to leave the road and overturn.

A 17-year-old girl who was a passenger in the car was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

PC Richard Thorley, the officer in charge of the investigation, said: “Following an initial appeal for witnesses, we now have some information that two other vehicles may have been in the area at the time of the collision.

“One is a red coloured people carrier type vehicle which passed through the scene but did not stop.

“The other car was possibly travelling without headlights on, and is described as having a large spoiler on the back, like a Subaru.

“These cars may or may not have any bearing on this collision but we’d like to ask anyone who was in the area at the time and saw any of the three cars car and the manner of driving prior to the collision to contact us.

“Any information could greatly assist us with the investigation and determining the circumstances surrounding the collision.”

Mr Robinson’s family continue to be supported by specialist officers and have asked for their privacy to be respected at this extremely difficult time.
