WorkSafe not investigating crash that killed two in 2019

An aunt's five-year fight for her nephew's death to be fully investigated has ended with a firm no from WorkSafe.

A coroner told WorkSafe to reconsider what it did after two young casual workers, Jake Ginders and Floyd Harris, both on learner licences, crashed near Woodville in 2019.

WorkSafe has now told the men's families it has done enough and will not investigate further.

It made a visit to the labour hire firm AWF months after the crash.

Jake Ginders' aunt Diane Chandler of Levin says society is the loser.
