A 15-year-old girl has pleaded guilty for being responsible for the death of a passenger because of her reckless driving after her car overturned, killing her teenage passenger.

William Kingham, who was also 15, died at the scene of the crash after his Renault Clio flipped on its roof.

The crash took place in Kenilworth Road, Knowle, England, on 23 November 2020.

The girl, whose identity has not been revealed, also pleaded guilty to driving without a license or insurance at Birmingham Youth Court on Thursday.

She was handed a 12-month referral order to agree a contract of rehabilitation.

The girl will work with the Coventry youth offender panel. She has been disqualified from driving for three years.

West Midlands Police said the driver of a second car, who had been arrested as well on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, has since been released without any further action.

Back in November 2020, William’s family said they were “totally devastated and heartbroken”.
