POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a teenager died when the car he was travelling in crashed into a steel barrier.
The accident occurred shortly after 6pm on Saturday on Blackburn Road, Clayton-le-Moors.
Andrew Taylor, 19, of Brunshaw, Burnley, was a passenger in a silver Ford Mondeo.
A 37-year-old man from Hyndburn was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving but was released on bail.
The car was travelling from Clayton-le-Moors towards Rishton.
Police said Andrew was sitting in the front of the car at the time of the incident and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Another passenger, who was seated in the back, suffered only minor injuries.
Authorities believe the driver lost control on a right-hand bend just after the Dunkenhalgh Hotel and collided with the barrier on the opposite side of the road.
Police would like to speak to anybody who saw the car travelling around the Rishton and Clayton-le-Moors areas between 5.15pm and 6pm on Saturday.
In particular they would like to hear from anybody who saw the silver Mondeo in the Dunkenhalgh Way area between 5.30pm and 6pm.
Sergeant Pete Sculpher said: "We are particularly keen to speak to the occupants of a black Audi A5 or A4, a white van or a red Vauxhall Vectra who we believe may have seen the Mondeo in the area of Dunkenhalgh Way shortly before the collision.
"Even the smallest amount of information could help us piece together exactly what happened and I would urge witnesses to come forward."
Anybody with any information should contact police on 51212 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
