'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Unlawfully Killed By QPR's Ray Jones

Coroner Dr Elizabeth Stearns said QPR up and coming star Ray Jones's driving on the night he died in East Ham fell 'far below' expected standards.

The Daily Mirror reported...

'A football star would be facing death by dangerous driving charges had he not been killed in a triple-death crash, an inquest heard.

Promising QPR striker Ray Jones, 19, sped over a pedestrian crossing on the wrong side and hit a double-decker bus head-on.

The player - said to have had the 'world at his feet' - died with two passengers, Jess Basilua and Idris Olasupo, both 17, in East London, 23 days after passing his test.'

Verdict

At the Walthamstow inquest, coroner Dr Elizabeth Stearns recorded accidental death on Ray Jones but ruled the passengers were unlawfully killed.

Editor of Vital QPR says...

I may have QPR blood runs through my veins nevertheless, as someone who has day-to-day involvement in the legal profession I have say that the verdict firmly lays the blame on Ray.

I am not privy to the exact details of the incident however, as a fully trained pursuit driver, one has to consider all the factors.

I am not here to judge anyone, nevertheless three people died on that tragic night.

May Ray, Jess and Idris rest in peace.
