Men guilty over stolen lorry death crash

Three men have been found guilty of causing the death of a woman who was hit by a stolen lorry moments before it ploughed into the side of a house.

David Mellor, 48, Wayne Carroll, 29, and Alan Mawhinney, 53, were passengers in the lorry which ran over 58-year-old Jacqueline Wileman, in Barnsley, in 2018.

Mobile phone footage taken after the crash showed Carroll and 23-year-old Karn Hill, who had been driving the vehicle, attempting to run away.

The men, all from South Yorkshire, are to be sentenced on Thursday.
