    Rage at a young driver's two and half year jail sentence

    Rage at a young driver's two and half year jail sentence


    19-year old driver Tyreese Fleming crashed his vehicle into a concrete powerpole outside Timaru, killing five teen passengers.

    He was on a restricted license, had been drinking and was speeding when he crashed

    The families of the five teens turned down an offer of 20 thousand dollars in emotional harm reparation.

    Stephen Drummond, whose son died, says he's angry at Fleming, who he doesn't believe is remorseful.
