Couple may have seen crash tragedy

Have your say

POLICE investigating a road crash in which a schoolboy pedestrian was killed and his friend seriously injured are appealing for help in tracing a couple who may have seen it.

Koen Allwood, 15, died and his female friend, also 15, was badly hurt when they were hit by a blue Peugeot 306 in Dam Road, Barton upon Humber, at about 10.50pm on Wednesday, November 15.

A man and a woman talking an Eastern European language were seen in the area soon after the incident but have yet to be traced.

In a statement after his death, Koen’s family revealed that he had been walking his friend home at the time and that they had known each other since being two or three years old.

The girl, who has not been named, suffered life-threatening injuries but is recovering in hospital.

Koen’s funeral is due to take place in Barton today.

Anyone with information about the potential witnesses can call Humberside Police on 101.
