BBC star Reiss Jarvis, who is known for his role in Murdered for Being Different (2017), was killed in a car crash where the driver was speeding on an unlit road. He was 21.

Per multiple publications, an inquest heard that Jarvis was killed in a car accident after a driver, who was speeding, "lost control" and crashed into a tree.

Jarvis was in the front passenger seat of a Mazda 3 when it veered off its country road course and hit a tree, plunging down an embankment.

The film and television actor is understood to, as a result of the crash near the village of Delph, Oldham in Greater Manchester, have suffered multiple "unsurvivable" injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene in Saddleworth on November 10 last year.

The driver, 34-year-old Karl Young, was pulled from the vehicle and taken to the hospital from the scene, and later died.

Rochdale Coroner's Court, where the inquest was held, heard that Young lost control of the car when he was driving at an "excessive speed" on an unlit road at around 8.40pm that night.

The duo were on their way home to Oldham after going to a fish shop in Marsden, which is in West Yorkshire.

The inquest heard from Greater Manchester Police's Serious Crash Investigation Unit via Police Sergeant Neil Pennington, who said that through analysis of the car's airbag module, it was discovered that the vehicle had been driving at 110 miles per hour (approx. 177 kilometres per hour).

"At the speed they were driving at, if anything did happen or a loss of control were to occur, it would be very hard for them to regain control of that vehicle," Pennington said in the hearing.

Jarvis' cause of death was confirmed to be from "multiple fatal injuries as a result of a road traffic collision," per pathologist Dr. Abdul Ganjifrockwala's post-mortem examination.

There was no evidence, according to Pennington, of any other vehicles being involved in the incident.
