From Checkpoint, 5:08 pm on 29 June 2022

Devastated families have told of their absolute heartbreak of losing their teenage boys, when their car smashed into a power pole in Timaru last year.

The car was driven by then-19 year old Tyreese Fleming - who was the sole survivor - and today he was sentenced to two years and a half years in jail.

A sentence some grieving family members said means nothing. Jean Edwards reports from Timaru.
