HEARTBROKEN families have left tributes to three teenagers killed in the second triple-teen death crash in the area within five weeks.

Underage driver Michael Gallagher, 16, and pals, Tom Hughes, 15 and Antonia Browne, 14, died after their Honda Civic ploughed into a tree and was sliced in two.

All three lost their lives on the A630 between Conisbrough and Warmsworth, on Sunday at 4.30am.

The scene was a chilling repeat of the crash which claimed the lives of 17–year–olds Robert Tepper and Jonathan Scott and Lauren Birkett, 16, on Adwick Road, Mexborough on December 27.

Stunned families and emergency services are asking what can be done to bring a halt to this needless loss of young lives .

Now the Mexborough firefighter who faced the carnage of both crashes is pleading for EVERY school to target young drivers BEFORE they are old enough to legally get behind the wheel.

And the father of the girl who survived the Mexborough crash, has called for additional tests for young motorists.
