A 14-YEAR-OLD Huddersfield boy has died after an accident with a car.
He was killed at 6.30pm last night following a collision with a 4X4 car on Leeds Road at Bradley.
The black BMW X5, driven by a 30-year-old Bradford man, was travelling towards Huddersfield when the accident happened, just past the junction of Leeds Road and Bradley Road.
The boy, who has not been named, was treated by paramedics. He was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, where he was said to be dead on arrival.
Police said today the boy was from Lowerhouses. The driver was shaken but not hurt.
The owner of a nearby newsagent's shop said he did not see the accident but went outside when he heard the police sirens.
"All I heard was that there had been an accident with a boy killed," he said. "It is very sad, because he was only 14. When I went outside there were police cars everywhere. They closed off the road from about 7pm to 11pm."
He added: "This road is really bad on a morning and night, it gets very busy. There have been a few accidents here."
