The families of two young men who filmed the moment they died in a high speed crash have released the footage.

Kyle Careford, 20, was driving with Michael Owen, 21, when they smashed into a church wall in Jarvis Brook, East Sussex.

The distressing footage shows them travelling along country roads with one of them saying that they were going at 90mph.

Seconds later, the footage goes black, you hear the noise of the collision, and then the video comes into focus.

A woman can be heard trying to rouse the men, telling them that an ambulance is on its way. But they were killed instantly.

Watch the distressing video below:

The collision happened in April this year in a 30mph zone of Sussex. After their inquest last week, their families agreed to release the footage, filmed on Michael’s phone.

Michael’s mother Kat said: ‘I really don’t know why the boys chose to do what they did, but I blame them both for the decisions they made on this night.

‘If all this stops one person from making the same mistake, then some good has come from showing this video. I’m hoping it will have an impact on young people and make them see that a bit of fun can have such devastating consequences.

‘I would like all the young people out there to take notice and realise that you are not invincible and take seriously how precious your lives are to yourselves and others. I want young drivers to consider how much devastation it causes to the families and loved ones that are left behind.

‘Watching the video was very upsetting, but I’m hoping it can be used in a positive way, by showing young people what could happen to them.’

Kyle and Michael were wearing seatbelts at the time. They were found to have taken prescribed and illegal drugs.

Kyle was not insured and did not have a licence to drive the car which was owned by Michael.
