Fatal tree crash teenager named

A 17-year-old driver who died when his car hit a tree in Northumberland has been named by police.

Peter Pringle was killed when his Vauxhall Corsa crashed on the B6341 between the A697 and Alnwick on Friday.

His two male passengers, aged 20 and 28, were hurt and are now being treated in Wansbeck hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The crash comes after Sam Gattens, 17, died when his car overturned on another part of the same road on 15 June.

Mr Pringle, of Anlwick, had been driving a Vauxhall Corsa.

His 28-year-old back seat passenger, who was thrown from the car in the impact, suffered back injuries.

The 20-year-old front seat passenger is being treated for neck and shoulder injuries.
