Used Car Week registration now open

CARY, N.C. – 

Registration is now open for Used Car Week, which will be an all-digital endeavor this year, with content spread across four weeks this fall.

Similar to a host of other industry gatherings, Used Car Week is shifting to an all-digital format that will still include the staples of the event — Pre-Owned Con, Auto Fin Con, Repo Con and the National Remarketing Conference.

Two teenage girls and driver, 21, killed after car hit tree ‘while overtaking at 90mph’

One friend, who was laying flowers at the scene, said: “I know Lucy who died and Nathan who was in the passenger seat.

“Nathan is hospital in Birmingham with a bleed on his brain. He’s having surgery because he’s also got a damaged spine.

“He [Josh] was going over 90mph and coming up behind another car. He overtook it and as he swerved back into the lane he lost control and went into the tree.

“I’m not sure why they were going that fast. I haven’t a clue. Some say there was an undercover police officer at the scene or there was another car behind that was trying to race them.”

The friend added: “Lucy never hurt anyone. She was a lovely girl. She had started a new job and was sorting her life out, but now she’s lost it.

“She had done accounting at college and started an apprenticeship.
