A 15-YEAR-OLD boy died in a collision after the car he was driving failed to stop for police.
Just before 00.30am on Friday December 14 officers in a marked police car indicated for a vehicle to pull over in Carlton Vale, Brondesbury Park.
The car, a Nissan Micra, failed to stop and continued in the direction of Brondesbury Park.
A few minutes later London Ambulance Service were called to reports that the car had been in collision with a tree at the junction of Brondesbury Park and Honeyman Close.
There were four male occupants of the Micra and the driver, believed to be 15-years-old, was pronounced dead at the scene.
A post-mortem examination will be held in due course.
Officers believe they know his identity, but await formal identification.
Three other males, all believed to be aged in their late teens or early 20s, were taken by LAS to a north London hospital.
One is in a critical condition and the two others are understood to be serious but stable.
The Nissan Micra had not been reported lost or stolen and it is not thought any other vehicle was involved in the collision.
Officers from the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) are investigating, supported by officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit at Alperton.
As with all such cases, the incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
Anyone who witnessed the collision or has information that may assist police should call 101 and ask for 'DPS SI Team 2'.
