A second teen has died after an alleged stolen car crashed in the state’s mid-west earlier this week.
Just after 6.30am on Sunday 2 December 2018, a Ford Mondeo lost control and rolled while travelling on the Castlereagh Highway at Gulargambone, about 25 kilometres north of Gilgandra.
The driver, an 18-year-old man, died at the scene, NSW Police say.
A 16-year-old male passenger suffered critical head injuries and was taken to Westmead Hospital where he died last night (Friday 7 December 2018).
Four other passengers, all male, were taken to Dubbo and Gilgandra hospitals with non life-threatening injuries.
Officers from Orana-Mid Western Police District are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash and appealing for anyone who witnessed it to come forward.
The vehicle had allegedly been stolen from a home in Coonamble the previous week.
A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
