Road racing deaths in wales

As ADI’s we try to teach the pupils everything we can for the roads. Sadly we can’t give them years worth of experience or hindsight. New driver, 17, dies in crash with girl- friend and best friend on mountain ‘racing road’
Rhodri Miller & girlfriend Alesha O’Connor die along with
best friend Corey Price when they smash into oncoming car
in Brecon Beacons three days after he passes test
A teenager passed his driving test just three days before he
was killed along with his girlfriend and best friend in a crash on a notorious mountain pass used for road racing.
Rhodri Miller, 17, was driving with his girlfriend Alesha O’Connor and best friend Corey Price, both 17, when they smashed into an oncoming car.
A-level pupil Rhodri was celebrating passing his test on Tuesday by going for a “cruise” with friends in his green VW Golf on Friday night as part of a convoy of six cars before the road smash.
His friend Corey was a promising young footballer who trained with the Cardiff City Football Academy.
The crash also claimed the life of 68-year-old Margaret Challis, who was a front seat passenger in an black Volkswagen Golf estate that collided head-on with Rhodri’s green Volkswagen Golf.
Five teenage boys, aged 17 and 18, were arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving on the notorious stretch of the A470, which sweeps through the Brecon Beacons National Park. Dyfed Powys Police said they have been released on bail pending further inquiries.
