King's Lynn man Aurelijus Cielevicius had drugs in system when he caused horror A47 crash which killed Gedney family, court hears





A man who has admitted to causing the deaths of three people had drugs in his system when he crashed into them.

Aurelijus Cielevicius, 39, of John Street, Lynn, pleaded guilty to three counts of death by dangerous driving at Norwich Crown Court today following a horror crash on the A47.

Gedney family Paul James Carter, Lisa Jayne Carter and Jade Channelle Mace were all killed in the collision on January 15.

And now, it has been revealed that Cielevicius had drugs in his bloodstream at the time.

Toxicology results, taken following the collision and read out at the plea hearing this morning, found ketamine in his system.

Detective Inspector Dave McCormack, the officer leading the investigation, said: “Toxicology reports found traces of drugs in his blood stream and the results are consistent with the prior use of methylamphetamine, cannabis and mephedrone prior to the collision happening.

"Although ketamine was also present, this could have been administered by medical staff after the collision as part of their treatment."

Cielevicius will return to court on April 3 to be sentenced.
