Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision in which two Bradford men were killed.

The Major Collision Enquiry Team would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident in Ovenden Road, Halifax, at about 10pm last night in which a Volkswagen Golf GTI collided with a lamppost while travelling away from the town centre.

The driver, a 20-year-old man and the passenger, a 19-year-old man, both from the Queensbury area, were killed as a result of the impact.

A rear seat passenger, a 19-year-old man, received a serious but non-life threatening foot injury and was taken to Leeds General Infirmary for treatment.

The car had been witnessed travelling with a red Vauxhall Astra VXR around Halifax town centre before the collision. Police are keen to trace the movements of either vehicle and their drivers.
