Two teenagers have been killed in a road crash involving a suspected drink-driver.

A 26-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, providing a positive breath test, and leaving the scene of a collision.

Two cars collided on the Lincoln bypass at around 12.50am on Saturday.

The occupants of a blue Ford Mondeo estate, a man and a woman aged 19, were pronounced dead at the scene following the collision with a white Citroen C3.

Launching an appeal for information, a Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: “We have traced the immediate family of the victims and broken this desperately sad news to them.

“Anyone who was on the bypass between the Carholme and Skellingthorpe roundabouts between about 12.30am and 12.50am and saw either the white Citroen C3 or the blue Mondeo estate before the collision, or saw the collision itself, is asked to contact police on 101.”

The road has since reopened.
