A British backpacker killed in a four-wheel drive rollover on Queensland's Fraser Island was the only tourist not to drive the car "because she did not feel safe", an inquest heard.
Jade Fox, 22, from Maidstone, southeast of London, died when the 4WD flipped on a three-day "tagalong" tour of Fraser Island in October 2014.
The German tourist behind the wheel lost control of the vehicle carrying Ms Fox and six other backpackers, an inquest in Maidstone heard.
The teenage driver had overtaken a vehicle in their convoy and was driving at between 40 to 45 kilometres an hour when the accident occurred.
She looked down to change gears when the car veered to the left after hitting a patch of soft sand.
The 19-year-old driver then over-corrected to the right, rolling the 4WD and leaving Fox trapped.
Assistant Coroner Catherine Wood said a pathology report found that Fox, the only one killed, died from positional asphyxiation, and gave the verdict as death by road traffic collision.
The coroner's court also heard on Thursday that the 22-year-old insurance broker had fractures caused by her seatbelt.
After the inquest fellow traveller Remmi Sexton said she was unhappy she was not given the chance to make a statement.
"I don't agree that it was a traffic road collision accident because more than one of us have sued the tagalong company," she told reporters afterwards.
Sexton said they had been told to "keep 100 yards (90 metres) between cars", but the leading car was about 3km ahead, and the lead driver had been telling the other cars to "hurry up".
"He was so far ahead we couldn't even reach him through the radio," she said.
"The car behind had to drive after him having just witnessed the crash.
"Jade was the only one who didn't drive because she didn't feel safe enough."
Fox's father Chris Fox - who went to Australia to identify his daughter's body - said he was told by locals about the dangers of tagalong tours, which involve tourists driving 4WDs in convoy and taking it in turns to drive.
Fox's family lobbied for the laws to be changed in Australia.
The assistant coroner apologised to the family about the length of time between the opening of the inquest in November 2014, and the ruling, due to problems gathering evidence in Australia.
"There has been some administrative problems liaising with the different authorities to gather evidence," Wood said.
She accepted the pathologist's findings and gave a verdict of death by road traffic collision.
"Jade was a rear side passenger in a vehicle on a tour of Fraser Island," Wood said.
"Jade Fox was trapped in the vehicle and died at the scene.
"I offer you my sincerest condolences. At least with this process over, it's something behind you, not in front of you, and you can take steps to get on with your lives."
