Two die in car high-speed car smash

Two men were killed when their sports car smashed into a wall at high speed early yesterday.

The victims, aged 18 and 25, were in a Mazda MX5 car which sped down a dead-end road and crashed into a wall in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

A police spokeswoman said: "The car completely demolished a lamp-post before hitting the wall so they must have been going at some speed."

Accident investigators were examining the scene and the wreckage.

The two men have not yet been formally identified, and police have not ruled out the possibility that the car had been stolen.
