Four people were killed when a car crashed into a tree in Cheshire.

The accident happened on the A450 Chester High Road near Neston in the early hours.

Two men and two women, all thought to be aged in their early 20s and from the Neston area, died in the crash, Cheshire Police said.

The road is expected to remain closed for some time while fire crews work to cut three of the victims from the wreckage. One person was thrown clear.

The car was travelling towards Wirral when the accident happened at about 0200 BST close to the junction of The Runnell.

The A450 remains closed between The Runnell and Boathouse Lane.

RIP whoever these people are.

This is the road with big signs saying how many accidents and deaths there has been isn't there. I don't see how many people crash on a wide fairly straight stretch of road. In this case, looking at the time, i suspect tiredness was involved.

Still a tragedy though. RIP

i drive a taxi around this area and passed the crash a few minutes after it happened and before the emergency services got there. from the state of the car it was obvious no one could survive that impact. tragic waste of four young lives. RIP.

I was working last night and got called to it.
A fair bit of politics went on to decide whether it was on cheshire or us.
Needless to say it was deemed to be on Cheshire.
I saw the wreckage up close....and i couldnt even tell you what car it was.
Probably one of the worse ones ive ever seen.
People usually get thrown from the car when they havent got a seat belt on....lesson to be learnt here peeps!

Rover 214's do look a bit like Tigras. A few years ago I once saw an Integra and another car racing each other along this road, doing over 100 mph going through red lights. I couldn't believe my eyes, they had absolutely no concern for their own lives or anyone elses.

Is this good or bad though, seems a bit of a lottery (I'd prefer to keep it on)? I remember when there was a bad crash on Acre Lane in Bromborough behind the Kwik Save. One kid was thrown clear and collided with a tree head first.
