The eerie scene left in aftermath of fatal crash

PIECES of shattered glass, tyre tracks and an array of floral tributes is all that is left at the scene of a horrific crash site where four teenagers lost their lives.

Bunches of flowers sat propped against a power box at Bayswater Rd this morning, just metres from where the alleged stolen car lost control and smashed into a traffic light.

The force of the impact was clear on the traffic pole and patches of blood stained the road.

The 14-year-old driver of the car survived the crash and has been charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death, among other offences.
