LONDON, Oct 20 (Reuters) A woman driver and her teenage passenger were among three people killed in a seven-vehicle motorway pile-up in northern England, police said today.

The 36-year-old woman and the 17-year-old boy, a back seat passenger, were killed instantly when their Vauxhall Cavalier left the carriageway and careered down an embankment, Humberside Police said.

The 52-year-old driver of a Honda CRV died in hospital after his vehicle overturned during the incident.

No further details of the victims have been released.

The crash, involving a lorry and six cars, happened on the M62 last night.

Six people sustained injuries in the accident, on a west-bound stretch of the motorway between junctions 35 and 36 at 6.45 local time yesterday, and were taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
