The identities of two teenage passengers killed in a horrific crash in Sydney’s southwest have been revealed.
Braydan Collier, 13, and Kaine Bell, 14, were killed when the car crashed into a tree and power pole outside a home on Maxwells Ave, Ashcroft on Monday morning.

The pair were in the back seat.
One of the boys was thrown from the vehicle on impact, while the other was held in by his seatbelt.
It is believed speed was a factor in the crash.
The two teenagers were reportedly best mates, with Braydan having only just celebrated his 13th birthday on Sunday.
Tributes have begun to pour in for the two teens online.
“So heartbreaking baby Kaine. Rest in peace baby boy,” one person wrote.
“My nephew, I’ll always love you,” a Collier family member said.
CCTV captured the entire incident, including the moment two men — the driver and his surviving passenger — ran away.
The men have been named as Nicholas Thew and Anthony Morris, who are believed to be either family members or friends of the two boys.
In the footage, a dirt bike rider who had been travelling behind the vehicle can be seen riding up to the debris of the crash and looking down at the body of one of the boys.
The rider then checks on the two men in the front of the vehicle, before a male emerges from the wreck. The dirt bike rider then rides off.
The man who emerged from the wreck walks over to the two dead boys, unbuckling one from the seatbelt.
He then helps a second male out of the wreck before walking over to the body of the boy thrown from the car.
The pair then ran off.
Assistant Commissioner Brett McFadden condemned the two men for their actions.
“When you’ve caused that much carnage and you don’t stick around to take responsibility for it, it’s a weakness of character,” he said.
“We will find them, they just need to present themselves to a police station.”
An extensive police search for the two men is ongoing.
Anyone with information has been urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
