Three dead, not much said

If three teenagers had been stabbed to death in a single incident this would be a massive story. But three youths killed in a car crash only makes the news because one of them had a footballing connection. The make of car and its top speed are not even mentioned, even though reckless speeding is likely to have been the cause of this fatal crash.

A promising footballer was one of three teenagers killed when their car ploughed into a lamp post.
