Five teenagers died after a car crashed into a tree in southwest Sydney. Antonio Desisto, Tyrese Bechard, Summer Williams, Lily Van De Putte and Gabriella McLennan – all aged between 14 and 16 – died shortly after 8pm on Tuesday, September 6th when a Nissan Navara veered off the road in Buxton, 100 km southwest of the Australian metropolis.

The driving boy, Tyrell Edwards, 18, was taken to Liverpool hospital with minor injuries. He was arrested but not in police custody. The news on the sidelines of the words of the father of one of the victims, John Van de Putte, who admitted to ABC that he “does not hold a grudge” against the man because “hell is about to pass”.

The horrific incident of horror left Buxton in a state of shock; devastated residents try to understand the tragedy. One of Gabriella McLennan’s best friends knelt at the scene of the accident and tearfully placed a photograph of the victim as a young woman – photoshopped with a yellow halo above her head.

Antonio’s best friend also showed up visibly emotional at the scene of the accident, revealing a bit of irritation with the media present: “Show some respect”, shouted the young man in tears before leaving with his mother.

Wollondilly Shire Mayor Matt Gould said “the entire county woke up in shock and grief” on Wednesday. “I really have no words for how horrible it is,” he said. Superintendent Adam Druber told the Today Show that despite all the efforts of emergency responders, “there wasn’t much anyone could do” for the victims.
