Teenager Killed in Police Car Chase Accident

A teenager has died in a car accident after his car hit a central reservation and somersaulted down a dual carriageway while being chased by police. The 19-year-old, named locally as Matt Seddon, was thrown from the vehicle as it rolled along a road in Reading, Berkshire, at around 11.30pm yesterday.

He was being chased by police after he failed to stop when he was ordered to pull over and lost control of the red Fiesta on the A33 Rose Kiln Lane, driving across two lanes before rolling the vehicle which eventually landed upright on his wheels.

Mr Seddon, a former pupil at Denefield School, Reading, was thrown from the car and tributes have been left at the scene of the tragedy.  A card on one of the bunches of flowers said: ‘He was great, great lad.’

Others took to Facebook to express their condolences. Danielle Rose, said that she recognised the wrecked car as the Fiesta she had recently sold to Matthew. ‘That’s my mate and my car,’ she wrote. ‘RIP Matt Seddon. xx’

Sophie Edwards wrote: ‘R.I.P. Matt, Loved By So Many People. Can’t Believe It :'( Sleep Tight Hun’ and Evie Newman said: ‘R.I.P Matt Seddon, sad to say goodbye to someone so young. Sleep tight x’

Our condolences go out to the family and everyone related to the teenager involved in the accident, as it is a tragic loss regardless of the circumstances.
