The hair-raising last words of a six-year-old girl killed in a quad accident were those of panic when the teenage driver lost control.

& # 39; I hated that, & # 39; she cried when the adult ATV, crammed with three young girls, moved through a ditch and another screamed & # 39; I was going to stack & # 39 ;.

Myley Maxwell died minutes after her death in a tree when the vehicle crashed on a farm in rural NSW.

Her lifeless body then lay in a garage that was covered with a blanket for eight hours due to miscommunication between police officers.

Myley should never have been on the bike – warning labels forbid everything the girls were doing, but her friend's parents never bothered to read them, a coroner heard on Thursday.

Deputy State Coroner Elizabeth Ryan was devastating in findings from an investigation into her death at the Lidlbe Coroner & # 39; s Court in Sydney.

She and Myley's parents believe she would still live if laws prohibiting children from larger quads were passed.

An investigation into a series of other young deaths made a number of recommendations in 2015, but they were all fired by the NSW government.

Myley pleaded with her parents, Sheree and Josh, to stay with a 13-year-old friend in Narrabri on March 5, 2017.

After her friend's father refused, the mother allowed the couple and three other girls aged 13 and older to ride two 420cc Honda TRX bikes around the 9,000-hectare site.

Just after noon, Myley was sitting in front of the driver with another passenger while they were zooming up to 35 km / h. Nobody wore a helmet.

One of the girls filmed parts of the ride, including where the driver – who had only used smaller quad bikes – seemed to lose control and deviate from the dirt road through a ditch.

The voices of the girls shouted: & # 39; that was really scary & # 39; and & # 39; oh my god, I went full stack & # 39 ;. Myley & # 39; s voice can be heard: & # 39; I hated that & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Any adult viewing the footage would conclude that the girls' driving style was not safe, & # 39; Ryan said in her findings.

Moments later, while the phone was still answering, their bike couldn't turn and bumped into a big tree.

One of the girls was relatively unharmed when she got up to see that the driver had been knocked down and that Myley & l was very quiet and had a lot of blood coming from her nose and mouth.

& # 39; The sound recording graphically shows the horror and shock … The three girls scream and scream when they realize that Myley has been seriously injured, & # 39; said Ryan.

& # 39; In panic they help each other to put the unconscious Myley on the other quad.

& # 39; A voice, presumably that of the semi-conscious (director), keeps a great whimper everywhere. & # 39;

The owners of the house met the girls halfway through the house and made & # 39; painful efforts & # 39; to revive Myley on the garage floor until the ambulance arrived.

She was declared dead 63 minutes after the crash.

Medical experts told the study that her injuries, including multiple skull fractures and bleeding in her brain, & # 39; non-transferable & # 39; goods.

Myley & # 39; s parents arrived shortly thereafter and her mother was inconsolable by her body until it was finally removed eight hours after the crash.

Due to miscommunication and poor phone coverage, the local police mistakenly believed that the body should stay where it was until the crash investigators arrived.

& # 39; The rising distress of Myley & # 39; s parents as the afternoon and evening wore on can only be imagined, & # 39; said Ryan.

During the investigation, the girlfriend's mother explained that she had never read the warnings on the quads, so she had the girls ignore all of them.

The labels clearly state that no one under the age of 16 is allowed to drive, passengers must not be transported and helmets must be worn.

Crash researchers said that the inexperienced driver of Myley & # 39; s bike might not be able to steer properly because Myley was sitting in front of her

& # 39; There can be no doubt that the way the children were allowed to use the quadbikes was completely inappropriate and unsafe, & # 39; said Ryan.

& # 39; She and her friends were allowed by adults to use quadbikes in ways that were far beyond their intended use, and with complete disregard for warnings that were prominently displayed.

& # 39; Myley & # 39; s death was a tragedy that was completely preventable. Her family is deeply saddened by her death and the four young girls who were with her are still struggling with their feelings of shock and sadness. & # 39;

During the judicial investigation, the mother who received the sleepover said she had told the older girls to wear a & # 39; hat & # 39; to put on Myley while driving the quads.

She said she had the word & # 39; hat & # 39; used on site to refer to a helmet, but the girls might have misunderstood because they had put a baseball cap on Myley.

She also rode on an unknown path, perhaps not strong enough to steer hard at that speed, and perhaps panicking and pumping the gas.

Ryan spent a significant part of the 20-page findings on a series of new laws that Myley's parents wanted to name for her.

She said that wearing a helmet while using a quad must be mandatory, and that children under the age of 16 are not allowed to ride adult bikes.

She also advised the state government to look at mandatory permits or training for anyone who wants to ride an adult bicycle.

It would be a criminal offense to violate one of these, and the police would be allowed to enter private property to investigate.

In 2015, another previously made similar recommendations, while looking at nine other fatal quad-incidents in the state.

Then Attorney General Gabrielle Upton refused to refer the legislative reform committee to consider submitting the recommendations

This was because then-Road Minister Duncan Gay advised that the road transport law did not apply to private areas.

Over a period of 14 years, between 2001 and 2015, there have been more than 200 quad vapor deaths in Australia.
