The passengers – three girls, two aged 14 and one 15, and two boys aged 15 and 16 – all died at the scene, while the driver, an 18-year-old man, was taken to Liverpool Hospital with Non – Life-threatening injuries.

Now a devastated friend of the deceased teenagers has revealed she had spoken to them Tuesday night before the crash.

“You’ve always been there for me,” Ellie Mount told 7NEWS.

“I used to play football with them, you know, they were always there, and to think of them texting me last night asking if I’d like to hang out with them.

“You know, I could have got Mum to pick her up and it could have prevented it.

“They invited me to hang out, but I told them I can’t stay out late as I have to get up at 6 a.m. for school.”

Ellie added that the girls are great friends and said she didn’t know what to do after the accident.

“They weren’t ready to go yet,” she said.

“I feel like I can’t wake up … I’ve had the worst week ever.”

Suspected cause of accident revealed

Speed ​​has emerged as a likely key factor in the crash.

“At this stage we are examining all lines of inquiry, but our preliminary investigations would indicate that speed is a possible factor relating to this crash,” Acting Inspector Jason Hogan said Wednesday.

Hogan said the driver held a provisional driver’s license. He tested negative for drugs and alcohol at the scene.

The man is under police surveillance in the hospital and will be questioned if he is “suitable,” Hogan said. The inspector declined to comment on whether the teenager would be charged.

The car wasn’t stolen.

Where they were going was not disclosed. Forensic scientists have been investigating the scene of the accident since Tuesday evening.

All of the victims were students at Picton High School – aged 9 and 11 – while the driver is a former student.

Floral tributes are left at the scene, including by students at the school.

Hogan said the tragedy “must be extremely traumatic for family, friends, first responders and the local community to see the deaths of five young people in such circumstances.”

“So I can’t imagine how they would feel,” he said.

“Our family liaison officers have spoken to the families and given the circumstances, they would not be well.

“We will offer them some support and have reached out to the Road Victim Support Group to offer ongoing care and advice as part of the services they provide.

“We encounter traumatic scenes far too often. Drivers must take responsibility for their driving under all circumstances to protect themselves, their passengers and other road users in NSW.

“That’s why I appeal to all drivers to think carefully about what their actions could ultimately lead to.”
