The two teenagers who were killed following a high-speed car chase in Sydney’s southwest were brothers.

A 37-year-old Edmondson Park man was woken up about 4am on Sunday by a revving Holden Commodore, believed to be his, allegedly stolen by a trio of teens.

When he allegedly gave chase, the teenagers collided with a light pole at an intersection in Abbotsbury.

The two boys died at the scene.

A third boy, a 17-year-old, survived the crash and is in hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The man was taken to hospital for mandatory testing before being questioned by police.

On Sunday afternoon he was charged with a series of serious offences and was granted bail to face court later this month.

One of those is dangerous driving occasioning death.

‘Absolutely horrendous’

NSW Ambulance Inspector Joe Ibrahim said the crash site was one of the worst paramedics had ever encountered.

“The scale of this accident is absolutely horrendous,’’ he said.

 

“It is probably one of the worst, in fact, it is one of the worst. A senseless and tragic loss of young life, which should never have occurred.”

Bossley Park local Christine Willcocks described the sound of the collision with the light pole as “like lightning”.
