Four young people died in a car crash in Tartu County last night when a 23-year-old driver lost control of an Audi A6 and hit a tree.

Two 15-year-old girls and two 23-year-old men who were in the car, all died from the impact.

Apart from the driver, the others had their seatbelts on, but that didn't help, as judging by the braking marks on the tarmac, the car is believed to have been travelling way over the speed limit.

Postimees said on Wednesday morning that the driver had consumed alcohol beforehand, but this has not been verified by the police yet.

However, the police said that the driver had been penalized before for driving under the influence as well as speeding, and he had a suspended driving license.

So far it is the worst crash in Estonia this year. In total, 42 people have died in car accidents in 2015.
