In an accident in Wolfsburg on Wednesday evening, four young men 18 to 20 years, died. They rode in a brand new golf.

A fifth victim is in danger, police said. The 19-year-old driver had
the 170 horsepower car, which was registered to his father, only a few
hours earlier, picked up in person at the Wolfsburg plant. After he had
driven with friends, with over 100 miles an hour through his hometown.

The vehicle was a function of the roadway, crashed into a traffic
island, flung against a tree and was ripped from a second in two parts.

"The first responders offered a grim picture," said police spokesman
Thomas Figge. None of the five inmates had put on a seatbelt.
(inmates?) All were catapulted from the vehicle and thrown into the
street.

One of the men died at the accident scene, the other succumbed shortly
afterwards in the nearby hospitals to their severe injuries.

Currently, the bodies are examined for traces of alcohol, drugs and tablets.

Speed, some sort of intoxication, inexperience and probably bravado factor I'd guess. And inspite of the facts behind it, you've gotta feel sorry for all the families who are left..

If it hit at 100mph, what do you expect? Anything with the right force at the right angle will cause the right kind of obliteration.

Awful mess [:(]

Horrific

The driver of that car shouldn't have been driing like that at all- he had a responsibilty to the safety of his passengers.

Feel sorry for the families who now have to live with this for the rest of their lives.
