Teenager from Dewsbury and woman killed in holiday crash

A TEENAGER from Dewsbury has died in a car crash on the island of Crete.

Luke Hall, 18, who is believed to be from the Dewsbury Moor area, was travelling in a soft-top 4x4 after a night out in the resort of Malia in the early hours of Monday morning when it crashed into a parked motorbike and careered into a field.

Reports from the island say that a 41-year-old woman, Zara Crane Davis, who it is thought was driving, was also pronounced dead at the scene. Her friend Louise Waddington, 39, is in intensive care.

A fourth person, an 18-year-old man, escaped serious injury after the accident.

According to The Times newspaper, the two women had met the young men on a night out.

It is believed that Luke is an apprentice builder at Walter West Ltd in Dewsbury and went to St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy.

He was reportedly on holiday with a group of friends when the accident happened. They are due to fly back to Leeds Bradford Airport this evening.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are supporting the families of three British people involved in a car accident in Crete and are in contact with local authorities."

Dewsbury MP Paula Sherriff said: "Devastated to learn of the death of a local young man who was on holiday in Malia, Crete. Thoughts with his family and all who knew him at this sad time. RIP Luke."
