A police investigation into the death of a Slough woman who was tragically killed in a horror crash on the A413 is “reasonably certain” to result in criminal action, a coroner has revealed.

At around 2.30am on October 10 last year, 23-year-old Simran Johal, known as Simmy, died following a car crash in Chalfont St Peter.

She died after a blue Volkswagen Golf lost control and mounted the roundabout, causing it to flip onto its roof.

At a pre-inquest review at Beaconsfield Coroners Court, assistant coroner revealed that the police investigation into her death is “reasonably certain” to result in criminal proceedings.

He said: “She (Simmy) was a passenger in a motor car in which the driver lost control.

“We are advised by Thames Valley Police that they are continuing with their investigations and there is a reasonable certainty that there might be criminal proceedings rising out of this tragedy.

“If that was so they would take precedence over the inquest.”

He concluded by adjourning proceedings and advised that a further pre-inquest review will be held on September 9.
