TWO teenagers killed in a horror crash in Burnley have been named by police.

Passangers Kaiser Hussain (16) and Sajid Khan (19) from Accrington, died in the Marsden Road smash after the red BMW saloon they were travelling in hit a wall and two parked cars around 9 p.m. on Thursday night.

Kaiser was pronounced dead at the scene whilst Sajid died later at the Royal Blackburn Hospital.

The 18-year-old male driver of the car and the remaining passenger, a 20 year old man, also from Accrington, were being treated for non life threatening injuries at the Royal Blackburn Hospital.

The road was closed for around six hours to allow accident investigation to take place and specially trained police officers are providing support to the families involved.

Inspector Martin Bishop said: “A full investigation into the cause of the collision is underway and I would appeal to anybody who has any information at all about it to contact police.

“It’s believed a white car had been travelling with the red BMW a short time prior to the collision and I would like to speak with anybody who may have seen the cars being driven in the area yesterday evening.

“I would also appeal to the driver or any occupants of the white car to come forward and get in touch.

“This is an incredibly tragic incident in which two young people have lost their lives and our thoughts are with their families who are being supported by specially trained officers at this time.”

Anybody with any information should contact police on 08451 25 35 45 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
