    It overturned and collided? It collided and overturned?

      Looks more like it first overturned due to handling difficulties or a tyre blow out and then collided with the other vehicle. Obviously speed was a factor here. R.I.P everyone deceased!

      If newish BMW then prob due to speed as a blow-out wouldn't affect the car if correct tyres fitted :/ So prob lost control and this is just the start sorry to say :'(

    I still can't believe it, it still feels like i'm going to wake up from this nightmare & hear your friendly voice saying that you are invisible... that death is never going to touch you. Spoke with you only a few days ago & now you are gone, You were so full of life & only just beginning to discover yourself. We will miss you dearly my friend. Rhodes will never be the same without you. You have left a big hole in our hearts. Rest in Peace my friend & your family. Til we meet again. #heartbroken does not even begin to describe how I feel right now. Gone too soon but forever in our hearts :(
