Three brothers killed in 'fireball'

A LETHAL cocktail of alcohol and speeding claimed the lives of three brothers and a friend in a horrific car smash that was likened to the devastation in a plane crash, an inquest has heard.

Witnesses told how the car "exploded" on impact after it collided with a 30-seater bus, 2km outside Tullamore, Co Offaly, on August 10 last year.
