Teenager killed in horror M1 crash near Worksop is named
A teenager tragically killed in a horror crash on the M1 near Worksop has been named as Jordan Caster.
South Yorkshire Police said the 19-year-old, from Sheffield, was travelling northbound on the M1 in a white Volswagen Golf when the crash happened.
The Golf is believed to have lost control, causing it to leave the carriageway and collide with the barrier and several trees before coming to rest on its roof just before 7.30pm on Sunday between junctions 30 and 31.
Jordan, and a second man named locally as 22-year-old Tyrone Forde, were pronounced dead at the scene.
No other vehicles are believed to have been involved in the crash.
Both families have been informed and continue to be supported by trained officers.
Tributes have poured in for Jordan – fondly known as ‘Codeye’ by friends and family – since the fatal crash.
South Yorkshire Police are now appealing for information and asked for any witnesses to the collision to come forward.
A spokesman said: “We are asking any witnesses to the collision, or anyone who witnessed the Golf prior, to get in touch.
“We are especially keen to hear from anyone with dash cam footage which captured the Golf travelling along the M1 between 7pm and 7.29pm.
Meanwhile, more than £1,000 has been donated towards the funeral of Tyrone, who has links to Shirebrook.
Tyrone’s friend Jordan Parker has organised the online fundraising appeal to help pay for his funeral and support his young son.
On his Go Fund Me page, Jordan said: “This is for Tyrone’s funeral, we want to raise some money towards it to get him the best send off possible.
“Everyone show a bit of love and affection for Ty and his baby boy, every little helps from pennies to pounds, come on folks let’s get together for a good cause and good lad, least we can do since he would’ve done the same for us.”
Tyrone’s friends gathered to set off fireworks in his memory on Wednesday night as a tribute to the young dad.
