A Feltham man was drunk behind the wheel when he crashed his Audi and died on New Year’s Eve, an inquest has heard. 

Adair Ferreira, in his thirties, crashed his Audi A1 near the junction of Upton Court Road and London Road at 6.56am on December 31, 2021. 

A post-mortem was carried out following the Feltham man’s passing and it was proposed that multiple injuries from the crash led to death.

It was also proposed that drug and alcohol intoxication contributed to his death as a secondary factor. 

At the opening of the inquest into his death, senior Berkshire coroner Heidi Connor paid her condolences to Ferreira’s family and friends. 

The inquest was adjourned to allow time for Reading Coroner’s Court to gather evidence into the circumstances behind the man's death.

It will resume at Reading Town Hall on October 11, 2022.
