Updated December 20, A friend has revealed how she decided not to join a fatal car trip that ended with a teenage driver — who only had her P-plates for a matter of hours — dead and two other girls airlifted to hospital. Kimberley Berente, 17, had received her provisional driver's licence on Tuesday morning before she was killed in a car crash south of Perth in the early afternoon. The former Halls Head College student was driving with two year-old friends as passengers down a dirt road in Bouvard, near Mandurah, when she lost control of her car and rolled it shortly after midday. Major Crash investigators continue to investigate the accident, but told reporters they did not believe speed or dangerous driving were factors in the crash, rather it appeared to be driver inexperience on an unsealed road. Helena Mathews said the Erskine teenager had invited her on the fateful trip but she had not been able to join the group. She posted a screenshot of a text message she received on Tuesday morning where Ms Berente had celebrated her good news.
