The RCIPS has released the name of the teenager who died following a car crash early Sunday morning.

He was Jonathon Michael Jones (aka Shady), 18, of George Town.

Jonathon died after the white Honda Integra he was a passenger in collided with a parked truck on the Linford Pierson Highway at approximately 12.30am.

The 21-year-old driver sustained some injuries for which he received hospital treatment. He has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and causing death by dangerous driving.

Police said part of the investigation is concentrating on the possibility that the vehicle may have been racing with a second car when the collision occurred.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who saw the white Honda Integra prior to the crash, in particular heading east along Linford Pierson Highway. Police would also like to hear from anyone who saw any other vehicles on the road at the time.
