Teenagers die as car lands in field

Two teenagers were killed in a car crash on Boxing Day, police said

The men, believed to be aged 18 or 19, died when the car they were in veered off a dual carriageway and crashed into a field at around 11.50pm on Sunday in Handforth, Cheshire.

They were pronounced dead at the scene while two other teenagers escaped with non-life threatening injuries, Cheshire Police said.

All four were from the local area.

A Cheshire Constabulary spokesman said: "Just prior to 23.50 hours on Sunday 26 December 2010, a single vehicle road traffic collision occurred on the A34 Handforth bypass at its junction with the A555, Handforth, whereby a black Volkswagen Golf had left the carriageway into a field.

"On the arrival of the emergency services, two males were trapped within the vehicle. They sadly had received fatal injuries.

"Two further male passengers had managed to free themselves and were conveyed to Wythenshawe Hospital with what are described as non-life threatening injuries."

Police want to hear from witnesses or anyone who saw the Golf driving between Parrswood entertainment complex in Didsbury and the crash site before the crash.
