The two teenagers who were killed in Sydney’s southwest after a high-speed car chase were brothers.
A 37-year-old Edmondson Park man was startled by a revving Holden Commodore about 4 am on Sunday, suspected to be his, reportedly robbed by a teenage trio.
As he allegedly gave chase, the teens collided at the Abbotsbury intersection with a light pole.
Both of those boys died at the scene.
A third child, a 17-year-old, survived the accident and is in hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.
Before being interviewed by the police, the man was taken to the hospital for mandatory examination.
He was charged with a number of serious offences on Sunday afternoon and was given bail to face court later this month.
One of them is unsafe driving that causes death.
Joe Ibrahim, NSW Ambulance Inspector, said the crash scene was one of the worst paramedics he’d ever seen.
