“Paramedics arrived on the scene at 9.20am to find a light motor vehicle split in two. Several people were found lying around the wrecked car.

“Medics assessed the patients and found that three men, believed to be in their 20s, had sustained numerous fatal injuries. Nothing could be done for them and they were declared dead.
