Two teens ‘killed in horror army barracks car crash on way to Halloween party’

Two teenagers have reportedly been killed and four other people injured after a horror car crash outside an army barracks near Tidworth, Wiltshire at around 10.15pm on Friday.

Early reports suggest that at least one of the victims was a member of the armed forces, although sources at the MOD were unable to confirm that.

Several Witnesses, including soldiers from a nearby barracks, pulled the occupants – who had been on their way to a Halloween party and wearing fancy-dress costumes and make-up – from the car, reports The Mirror.

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance was called to the fatal incident and a source said the charity’s specialist medics performed surgery at the roadside.

The two fatalities are understood to have been teenagers.

A 29-year-old man suffered serious injuries, and the other occupant of the vehicle, a 20-year-old man, suffered minor injuries.

Fire crews from Dorset and Wiltshire and Rescue Service and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service attended the incident.

The road is expected to remain closed for most of Saturday for collision investigation and recovery work.
