Bus stop collision killed four friends

Court hears of potential causes

An inquest into a crash which killed four elderly residents has heard some of the passengers may not have been wearing seatbelts.

Derek and Joyce Brown, Kath Garrett and Marie Gordon, who were all in their eighties, died when a car driven by Mr Brown collided with a bus stop in Laxey on 24 July last year.

Investigators have this morning provided a list of potential causes, but added it is 'not possible' to calculate how fast the vehicle was travelling at the time.

The inquest at Douglas Courthouse continues.
