Two men are facing jail for their involvement in a crash which cost a Wiltshire teenager his life.
Daniel Palmer, 23, was today convicted of causing death by careless driving after his car hit a van in Lacock last November, killing his 19-year-old passenger, Max Lewis. The prosecution claimed he'd been racing two other men, one of whom, 19-year-old Connor Forester, only has a provisional license. He was today found guilty of dangerous driving.
They are due to be sentenced next month.
A third man, 26-year-old Julian Drew, was found not guilty of dangerous driving, but faces other offences at a later hearing, including disqualified driving and driving with no insurance.
