Indian-origin man killed in high-speed crash in England
A 30-year-old Indian-origin man and his co-passenger were killed as a result of speeding to beat the traffic lights in north-east England, an inquest into their death was told on Friday.
Sagar Chadha, speeding at 120mph before the fatal crash killed him and 17-year-old Mohammed Amin Ahmadi on the New Year this year, the inquest said.
Chadha also had cannabis in his system when his Nissan GT-R careered into a lamp post and flung into a tree. He was found trapped in the driver’s seat and suffered head injuries, organ damage and broken bones, and was found dead by the paramedics.
Ahmadi also sustained severe head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by ambulance crews. Specialist collision investigator, PC Allan Brown, told the coroner that in his view, “Chadha was instrumental in his own demise, and that of Ahmadi.”
