No mechanical fault, drink or drugs in crash which killed Viola Beach, say Swedish investigators

Investigators have found no cause for the crash which killed British indie band Viola Beach, including River Reeves who lived in Cornwall, and have now closed their investigation.

All four members of the group were all killed, along with their manager, when their car plunged 80ft into a freezing canal near Stockholm, Sweden.

Swedish traffic investigators say the car appears to have been working perfectly as was the bridge, barrier and alarm system at the site of tee crash.

Kris Leonard, 20, River Reeves, 19, Jack Dakin, 19, Tomas Lowe, 27, and manager Craig Tarry, 32, all suffered fatal injuries.

The Swedish Accident Investigation Board (SHK) said it has now closed its investigation but was not able to find a definitive cause for the crash.

Experts found all but one warning light was working on the bridge on the night of the accident last month.

The brakes of the band's Nissan Qashqai were also working on the night as CCTV showed the brake lights were working and that the vehicle slowed down before plunging from the bridge.

The SHK said it will not launch a full investigation into the crash and has now brought its probe to an end.

The SHK found one warning light wasn't working but that warning lights and security measures on the bridge were still sufficient on the night of the crash.

A statement said: "Despite this, the car passed over the stationary queues, warning signs, stop signals and the lowered booms."

Inquiry chairman Jonas B├Ąckstrand later told SVT: "We've done a pretty comprehensive study of the event and the judge did not think we could get so much more to do a full major investigationhave also found that essentially has signaling and booms worked.

"Yes there are always little things that do not work, in this case, for example, there is a warning that has not worked, but at the same time as all other lights worked.

"We have also been able to see the movie is that the vehicle slows down and the brake lights come on, so much to indicate that the brakes functioned at the time of the accident."

The car was found to have no break fluid and its brake line had been severed when the vehicle was recovered, but investigators found the damage was sustained in the crash.

Swedish Police have previously said post-mortem results show the driver of the vehicle was not under the influence of drink or drugs.

At the opening of an UK inquest at Warrington Coroners Court last week, the court heard the band suffered 'severe injuries' after their car smashed into a raising bridge before plunging into the canal.
