An inquest into a Worcestershire road smash in which four people died has been adjourned pending the outcome of a prosecution. County Coroner Mr Victor Round revealed that three of the victims were travelling in one car.

They were the driver Sidney John Smith, a 19-year-old unemployed man of Roberts End, Hanley Swan, front seat passenger Emma Louise Greathead, aged 18 of Madresfield Road, Malvern, who was a trainee nurse, and trainee hairdresser Katie Louise Brown, also 18, of Meadow Road Malvern.

The crash happened on the A449 Worcester to Malvern Road at Bastonford shortly before midnight on 23 October. Dr Geoffrey Smith said that all four had died from multiple injuries. Adjourning the inquest, Mr Round said Martin James Bradshaw, aged 19, had appeared before Worcestershire magistrates on Friday charged with causing death by dangerous driving. He had been bailed to appear before the court again on 16 December.1,4,2,5
