A TEENAGER killed in a three-vehicle collision in Littleport on Thursday has been identified as Jack Ure.
The 18-year-old, of Downham Common, in Little Downham, was driving a Renault Clio when it was involved in a collision with two other vehicles shortly before 2pm in New River Bank, just past the Sandhill rail crossing.
A second passenger was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with suspected pelvic injuries. The driver of a Mercedes, a 65-year-old woman from Ten Mile Bank, and the driver of a Land Rover, a 44-year-old man from Ely, both suffered serious injuries in the smash and were taken to hospital.
Tributes to the former Ely College Sixth Form student have already started flooded in on social networking site Facebook, with scores leaving their condolences.
