A TEENAGER has pleaded guilty to charges over a Secret Harbour crash last year that killed two of his friends and seriously injured another.

Joel John Payne was charged with two counts of dangerous driving causing death and a third charge of dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm.

Payne was driving his friends Mason Hooton (17), Callum Mummery (19) and Shaun Sparrow (16) to a party in his silver Toyota Supra when he crashed into a tree in Secret Harbour on October 6.

Mr Hooton and Mr Mummery were both killed in the crash while Mr Sparrow was critically injured.

Payne received minor injuries.

The young men killed both went to Comet Bay College leaving many of their fellow students, peers and the men’s families devastated after the accident.

Payne is due to appear at the District Court on April 13 for a sentencing date.
