Triple teen fatal: Police say car was being driven 'too fast' on a bend

A teenage driver who died in a crash with two of his friends had just passed his driving test and had traces of cocaine and the legal high MDMA in his bloodstream an Inquest has heard.

Police told the Inquest that the cause of the accident at Pulham Market near Diss in Norfolk in April 2017 was probably caused by Kyle Warren driving too fast on a bend. His lack of experience would also have been a factor as he'd passed his test just two weeks before.

The three teenage boys were in a black Ford Ka which crashed off a rural road on a bend, hit a tree and caught fire.

Farmhand Kyle Warren, 17, was driving the car and his passengers were 16-year-old student Billy Hines and Dominic O'Neill, 18.

All three were declared dead at the scene on April 6 last year and Norfolk area coroner Yvonne Blake said they died of multiple injuries and had to be identified by dental records.

Ms Blake concluded the three boys died as the result of a road traffic collision.

The crash happened on Tivetshall Road near Pulham Market, Norfolk, at around 11.50pm on April 5th 2017 and the three boys were declared dead on April 6th.

Ms Blake said police believed the car was "going too fast for the curve and caused it to swing around and then it left the road".

None of the boys tested positive for alcohol but Kyle had cocaine and MDMA in his bloodstream, Ms Blake said.

She said it had not been possible to determine the level of the drugs in his system and whether it may have contributed to the crash.

"I've no evidence any drugs (Kyle) had taken contributed to the accident itself."
