The 19-year-old, from Goole, was driving a black Seat Ibiza when he careered off the A19 near Owston at about 11.05pm on Friday.

The crash happened about 200 metres north of the junction with the B1220.

The man suffered a severe head injury and was taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary on Friday night. He was later transferred to the Royal Hallamshire Hospital where he died on Saturday afternoon.

Anyone who saw the collision or the manner of driving prior to it is urged to call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
