THE fatal collision happened in the early hours last October after the couple had been to the ‘Gender Blender’ gay night at RB’s nightclub in Chester.
Witness Nicola Roberts said in a statement she thought CarrieAnn had been drinking and ‘was wobbly on her feet’.
She saw her sitting at a table with another girl she had been kissing and recalled her saying: “You didn’t see that”.
Later she overheard a conversation between Carrie-Ann, known as Caz, and Hannah.
“Hannah grabbed Caz and said I can’t go a night without a drama lately,” said Ms Roberts, who recalled the girls bickering.
Witness Toni McGuinness remembered offering Carrie-Ann the chance to share a taxi.
Instead she drove Hannah home where they sat talking in the car outside.
By coincidence, Hannah’s neighbour and school friend Thomas Nowrie was driving home with two male friends after working at a take-away in Boughton, when they came across the girls, who he said ‘shot off’.
Mr Nowrie decided to follow the MG in his Peugeot 306 out of concern. He said: “I was concerned. She was driving erratically and the lights were flickering on and off.”
The three friends were first on the accident scene and rang for an ambulance.
PC Michael Baddeley, of the collision investigation unit, said the MG was travelling on a 60mph road at between 60-66mph when it lost control. He said an under-inflated rear tyre could have caused unfavourable handling characteristics. Carrie-Ann was not wearing a seatbelt.
He added: “The effects of alcohol may have had an effect on the driver’s ability to regain control of the vehicle.”
Assistant deputy coroner for Cheshire Jean Harkin said Carrie-Ann died of multiple injuries. She recorded a verdict of accidental death.
