A DRIVER who suffered brain injuries in a crash which killed three teenage girls after he had been racing with another car was today sent to a mental hospital for assessments to take place.
A court heard how James Houston, 27, was racing at speeds up to 60mph when his car crashed on Wakfield Road in Waterloo, Huddersfield, in Septmebr 2006 killing three passengers - Gemma Cost, 15, Ursula Alokolaro, 16, and Natalie Donlan, also 16,
The driver of the second car - Adam Anguige was jailed for 10 years earlier this year after he was found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving.
Houston was charged with the same offence but was deemed not fit to stand trial because he lacked the mental capacity after being injured in the crash.
