One of the boys has been identified as Zarif Rahman, whose parents are also doctors.

Athelstone community member Masudur Rahman said the incident is a huge loss for everyone.

“It’s a big severe loss for the family as well as for the whole community, and the nation as well,” Rahman said.

Both teenagers inside the vehicle on Montacute Road were just minutes from their homes in Athelstone and Rostrover.

Detectives are still investigating whether speed was a factor in the crash.
