Coronial Inquest Continues

scales of Justice B

Day two of the coronial inquest into the death of Targa Competitor John Ernest Mansell has been told the rally driver was going to fast and his car was positioned incorrectly on the road.

The 71yo was killing after his Porsche left the road and hit a tree near Exton on day one of competition in 2013.

Northern Crash investigation officer Nigel Housego gave evidence about the investigation he had carried out after the accident.

He found Mr Mansell had allowed his car to drift to the left hand side of road edge after taking a crest at over 200 kilometres an hour.

The inquest is expected to run for a week and hear from 10 witnesses.
