Police investigating a fatal road traffic collision in Leeds this week have released the identity of the teenager who died, as officers continue to appeal for witnesses.
Mason Foster, aged 17, from Morley, can now be named as the rider of an Aprilia 125 motorcycle that was involved in collision with a black Audi Q7 and a grey Ford Kuga outside the Shell petrol station in Bruntcliffe Road, Morley, at 9am on Monday, February 11. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The motorbike and the Audi were heading towards the junction with Bruntcliffe Lane at the time of the collision and the Kuga was heading the opposite way.
Detective Sergeant Fiona Hoodless, of the Major Collision Enquiry Team, said: “We are supporting Mason’s family at what is understandably a very difficult time for them and they have asked that their privacy is respected.
“We are continuing to build up a picture of the exact circumstances of the collision in which he died, and we are still keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or the movements of any of the three vehicles involved in the time leading up to it.
“If anyone was driving in the area at the time and has any relevant dash-cam footage, we would also like to hear from them.”
