Three teenagers were killed when the car they were travelling in crashed into a tree on a road in Doncaster.

Two boys, aged 15 and 16, and a 14-year-old girl, all from the Doncaster area, were in a Honda Civic on the A630 when it crashed at about 0430 GMT.

The girl and one of the boys died at the scene. The third boy died at Doncaster Royal Infirmary. All had multiple injuries.

Police said they did not believe the car had been stolen.

Police said the 16-year-old boy, from Warmsworth, was driving.

The girl, from Balby and the second boy, from Bessacar, were passengers.

The teenagers have not yet been named.

South Yorkshire Police said a taxi driver came across the accident scene and called the emergency services.

The car had been travelling from Conisbrough towards Warsmworth when it left the road near a water tower.

Officers want to establish where the teenagers had been prior to the crash and are appealing for anyone who saw the car's movements in the Conisbrough or Doncaster area to contact them.

Police have also appealed for business owners in the area who may have CCTV footage to contact them.
