At least four people were murdered in the ‘calamitous’ accident as they made their way to Mcd’s after leaving a party: Brandon Frew, Declan Grove, Matty Walshaw, and Caelan “Meggy” Megson, all 19.
On June 30 of last year, two 16- and 17-year-old females, both passengers in the automobile, were taken to the hospital but survived.
Caelan, the red Seat Leon driver, had strayed onto the opposite side of the street and was traveling at a speed of around 82mph.
On Thursday, a jury heard that he was twice over the drink-driving limit and had used cocaine inside the hours leading up to the horrific incident in Horsforth, West Yorkshire.

Both Caelan and Brandon, who were both wearing a seatbelt, were declared dead at the accident scene, although efforts were made to save the other two boys.
An automobile collision in West Yorkshire was caused by a drunk driver and a large number of passengers, according to a detective sergeant from the West Yorkshire Police.

An inquest at Leeds Coroner’s Court discovered that the friends had met the night before the fatal automobile collision at Brandon’s house in Leeds for a few beers.
Caelan, Brandon’s plasterer, was witnessed dancing and yelling after gulping down six desperados bottles as well as a shot more Absolut Vodka, according to the inquest.
Brandon Frew’s buddy Kyle Thornton said he had been just at Frews’ home hours before the tragedy that claimed the life of Brandon Frew.
“Caelan’s alcohol level was high,” he said. He danced and shouted while his shirt was off. By the way, he seemed, I recognized him as drunk, having known him for a long time. ” That night, Brandon Frew fell unwell and passed in a bedroom just before 11.30 pm, the inquest heard.
Caelan drove the group to a party at some other home in Leeds, where he met the two females, where they climbed into Caelan’s vehicle.

He had shouted to Meggy: “Meggy, slow down. It was clear that he was attempting to slow down as I neared him.
It was the seatbelts that saved Polly’s existence, she testified at an inquiry, even though they fractured her spine and dislocated her lower back.

In the end, he was delighted with life.
The end of the world as I knew it has come to an end for us.” Young men’s adolescence has barely started at the age of 19.”
According to Caelan’s mother, Joanne Megson, “Caelan, Brandon, and Matty were close friends throughout high school.”
There is no doubt in my mind that they would have stayed friends for the rest of their lives.”
