By Mary Wells

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has begun an independent investigation following a fatal road traffic incident at around 8:40am on Sunday 22 October in Bebington.

A suspected stolen Vauxhall Vectra crashed on Bebington Road while heading towards Birkenhead. The two men occupying the car were taken to hospital.

21 year old Brandon Griffin died on Monday evening after being treated for his injuries; a second man aged 26 remains in a stable condition in hospital.

Following a referral from Merseyside Police, IPCC investigators were deployed to the scene on the day of the incident. The IPCC investigation will look at the actions of Merseyside Police prior to the collision. All police officers involved are currently being treated as witnesses.

As part of their independent investigation IPCC investigators are appealing for any witnesses to the incident to contact the investigation team via email: bebington@ipcc.gsi.gov.uk; or by calling 0800 015 4876.

Merseyside Police is carrying out an investigation into allegations that the car was stolen.
