Shock pictures show wrecked Mercedes & Ford after driver veers into parked cars 'at high speed' leaving man, 18, dead | The Sun

SHOCKING pictures show destroyed cars after a driver crashed into parked cars leaving an 18-year-old passenger dead.

Two teens, aged 17 and 19, have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after the horror smash in Southampton.

A passenger has died and two teenagers have been arrested after the horrific collision.

A Vauxhall hatchback is believed to have been launched through the air before landing on a Mercedes.

Tyre marks show where the Vauxhall Corsa veered off the residential road at high speed, then ploughed through a garden wall before hitting a white Ford Kuga and flying into the air.

The Corsa appears to have then smashed into the Mercedes two houses down – crushing it in the process.

"I stayed back. I can't describe what I saw because I want to be respectful."

He added: "People need to slow down when they're driving in areas like this. It's a wasted life at the end of the day."

After the crash, which took place shortly before 1am, one resident was moved to a hotel for the night as emergency services worked at the scene and cleared the Vauxhall.

Carol Flecknor, 72, and her husband fear both their vehicles were written off.

Carol said: "We didn't see what happened but the car appears to have hit one vehicle, which hit a skip, which hit the front wall of the owner's house.

"After that it hit my husband's car, then my car, before ending up in the middle of the road."

The crash happened on Middle Road, a residential, narrow street with cars parked either side.

Another neighbour, surveying the scene, said: "They must have been going at high speed."

To go up and hit that first car and land two doors down and still have momentum for the car to end up in the road – it's scary."

A woman, who did not wish to be named, said: "Some young people think they're invincible – but they're not. It's stupid.

"It's horrendous for the people whose houses they landed on and hit. Can you imagine that happening in the middle of the night?
