The father of two boys killed in a stolen car crashed during an alleged high-speed chase in Sydney’s southwest has spoken out.

Two brothers, 15 and 17, died in Abbotsbury about 4am on Sunday.

They were allegedly in a stolen car, with its owner accused of pursuing them at high speed when they crashed.

Their New Zealand-based father, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, says he is devastated.

He told The Daily Telegraph he did not wish to speak about the circumstances surrounding the crash, but did share his last conversation with one of his sons.

Only three hours before the early-morning crash, his son sent him a text message.

“Imma head off now and get some rest. Love u dad take care,” his boy said.

“Love u my son,” he replied.

The dad is now attempting to book a flight into New South Wales to farewell his sons in person.

They were two of three people in the allegedly stolen Holden Commodore.

The other, a 17-year-old boy, survived the crash and was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police allege the boys stole a car from a home in Edmondson Park from a 37-year-old man.

He woke up to the sound of his car engine revving and allegedly gave chase at what police say was excessive speed.

The alleged chase caused the boy driving the Commodore to crash into a light pole.

As a result, the 37-year-old man was charged with several driving offences, including negligent and dangerous driving occasioning death.

He was granted bail to face court later in the month.

A makeshift memorial has now been set up at the intersection where the boys died.
