In hopes that others will learn from their sons mistakes, two families have agreed to release the video that was taken moments before, and during a fatal crash.

Here's what the YouTube video description reads:

The last moments of two young men's lives were dramatically captured on video as they sped to their deaths in Crowborough in April this year.

Driver Kyle Careford, 20, and his friend Michael Owen, 21, both died instantly when the red Renault Clio they were in crashed into a church wall in the early hours of Sunday, April 12 and overturned. Michael had been videoing their journey as they sped at up to 90mph through the Sussex countryside.

Both of the men had taken both prescribed and illegal drugs that would impair a driver. Also, Careford didn't have a driver's license, and was not insured to be driving the car, owned by Owen.

Kat Owen, the mother of Michael, had this to say about the video's release:

"If all this stops one person from making the same mistake, then some good has come from showing this video. I'm hoping it will have an impact on young people and make them see that a bit of fun can have such devastating consequences.

"I would like all the young people out there to take notice and realise that you are not invincible and take seriously how precious your lives are to yourselves and others. I want young drivers to consider how much devastation it causes to the families and loved ones that are left behind."
