A SCHOOLGIRL has died and a teenager is fighting for his life in a Hampshire hospital after a car crash.
The 14-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene of a two-car collision at around 3pm today (Jan 2).
She had been a passenger in a red Renault Clio which collided with a silver Renault Megane.
The 18-year-old male driver of the Clio was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital with life-threatening injuries, along with another passenger, a 13-year-old girl, who suffered serious injuries.
It took place at Mersley Down on the Isle of Wight and the road was closed for several hours while police investigated.
The driver of the Megane, a 67-year-old man, was treated for minor injuries at St Mary’s Hospital, Newport, but his wife, who was in the front passenger seat, is at the same hospital after sustaining serious injuries.
Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the crash to contact the Road Death Investigation team at Eastleigh on 101 quoting Operation Mohite.
