A TEENAGER remains in a life-threatening condition following a serious crash in Great Bromley.

Two 18-year-old men were involved in the collision where a red Peugeot 207 left the road at about 1.35pm on Sunday.

Two ambulances, an ambulance officer vehicle and Essex and Herts Air Ambulance were called to the scene in Harwich Road.

The driver of the car sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to Addenbrookes Hospital, in Cambridge, by the air ambulance.

The passenger in the car, from Colchester, was taken to the hospital by road ambulance for further assessment and care.

He was arrested on suspicion of taking a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent.

But, he has now been released under investigation by police.

An Essex Police spokesman said: "If you saw anything or have CCTV or dash cam footage please call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101 quoting incident 115 of May 19.
