Families of 2 Dead Teens Release Video of the Moment They Both Died


Driver Kyle Careford, 20, and his friend Michael Owen, 21, both died instantly when the red Renault Clio they were in crashed into a church wall in the early hours of Sunday 12th April and overturned.  Michael had been videoing their journey as they sped at up to 90mph through the Sussex countryside.

Now their families have supported the release of the video, which was shown at the inquest into their deaths in Hastings on Tuesday 6th October.

As they drive along a residential street , Michael appears to be concerned at the speed, shouting: “Slow down Bruv, we are doing 90”.

Tragically, seconds later the camera goes dark and the sounds of the crash in the quiet village of Rotherfield, just outside Crowborough, East Sussex, can be heard.

The car smashed into a church’s stone wall and rolled over a number of times. The muffled sound of a woman shouting “can you hear me” and “is anyone alive” can then be heard.

Both men – from Tunbridge Wells in Kent – were declared dead at the scene.
