Flipped: The victim is said to have been the driver of the car which had overturned at the scene PICTURE: LNP

A 15-YEAR-OLD boy and two 19-year-old men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after the death of a man in Oxfordshire.

A 19-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene in Thame on Wednesday at 7pm, Thames Valley Police said.

He was named locally as Joshua Harling, who lived in the area, and was said to have been the driver of a car that had flipped on the road.

Emergency service crews reportedly arrived at the scene believing they were dealing with a car crash, but discovered the driver had fatal injuries which were suspicious. Unconfirmed reports said there had been a gang fight involving a large group of youths immediately after the crash and it was during this that the man was killed.

Det Insp Mike Roddy appealed for witnesses and said there were ‘a number of people’ in the area, who may have captured the incident on video.

He said: ‘Please do not share this video on social media, but instead share it with police.’ The footage could be ‘very traumatic’ for family, he added.
