Man pleads guilty to killing three boys in crash

A driver has pleaded guilty to killing three teenage boys with his dangerous driving in a crash in west London.

Jaynesh Chudasama admitted at the Old Bailey to hitting the boys as they waited at a bus stop in Hayes on 26 January.

The 28-year-old was driving the Audi which hit Harry Louis Rice, 17, and 16-year-olds George Toby Wilkinson and Josh McGuinness.

They were heading to a 16th birthday party at the Goals five-a-side football club at about 8.40pm with a group of friends when they were hit.

Chudasama mounted the pavement and was arrested shortly after at the scene.

The black car was seen with its bonnet crumpled and its front left wheel hanging off.

Another man, aged 34, was arrested two days after the crash after he voluntarily attended a north London police station.

Despite the efforts of paramedics, all three boys were pronounced dead at the scene.

Tash Moriarty, head teacher at the boys’ school, Harefield Academy, said at the time: “We are all shocked and deeply saddened by the tragic loss of three students who attended the Harefield Academy.
