Two teens killed at Athelstone

Two teenagers are killed in a horror car accident in Adelaide.

The 17-year-olds died after their Holden sedan hit a tree in the east of the city.

The accident happened at 2pm on Montacute Road in Athelstone.

The couple hailed from Rostrevor and Athelstone.

“(The) car just went off the road and was completely wrapped around a tree,” said a witness.

“It looked really bad down there.”

Major crash police are trying to figure out what happened, but say it appears the driver lost control of the car in a bend.

The road has been reopened tonight.
