Daily Echo: Two die in fatal crash Two die in fatal crash

TWO men have died in a car crash on a Hampshire road.

The driver of the car, a 24-year-old man from Southampton, and the front seat passenger, a 23-year-old man from Botley, were both killed as a result of the accident that happened just after 11pm last night.

Emergency services were called to the scene of the crash which happened on the B2177 Southwick Road towards Boarhunt but both men were pronounced dead at the scene.

According to Hampshire police the investigation is looking into what caused the grey Mitsubishi Lancer the men were travelling in, to leave the road and crash. No other vehicle is thought to have been involved.

Officers are now appealing for witnesses to the crash which is now being investigated by the Roads Policing Unit team based at Fratton station in Portsmouth.

Leaves only one conclusion to the accident that, to leave the road and become a fatal, they must have been travelling well above the speed limit, otherwise you would expect below to possibly leave the road, but still be survivable
Best to keep your thoughts and speculations to yourself and show some respect to their families on this site.
Very sad irrespective of cause RIP lads......... so young.

Are you moonlighting as an motoring accident investigator? You can't say for sure that was what caused the accident! There's another story on here about a cow on the road, perhaps they hit something on the road, who knows certainly not me and you! Pointless speculation is very unhelpful, especially for the families of the deceased.

Agreed. At that time of night5 on a rural road anything could've caused the crash; oil, leaves, mud, deer, etc. It is not fair to assume speed or drink when the lads are no longer with us to defend themselves.
RIP fellas. Taken too young.
