Harrowing film recorded from inside the car reveals the last minutes of drug-drive friends who sped through the countryside at 90mph before crashing into a church and dying A harrowing video which shows the final moments of drug-fuelled friends who were killed in a high-speed crash has been released as a warning to others. Father-of-one Michael Owen, 21, captured the ride where driver Kyle Careford, 20, sped through the countryside at up to 90mph in Michael's red Renault Clio before they died. Harrowing footage shows the pair - who were high on a cocktail of drugs - egging each other on before the recording cuts out when they crashed. Michael's mother Kat hopes the video it will stop others from making the same mistake. Speaking after the inquest into her son's death, she said: 'We bring our children up teaching them right from wrong. We guide them and give them our advice and hope they listen, but once they are adults we hope they make the right choices. 'I really don't know why the boys chose to do what they did, but I blame them both for the decisions they made on this night. '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.' The video shows them rapping and laughing as Michael appeared to give his friend a driving lesson and filmed the speedometer hit 90mph. Michael was heard saying 'you're doing 90 boy, slow down' seconds before his unlicensed driver pal lost control and ploughed into a church wall, killing them both instantly in the early hours of April 12. The camera then cuts out. Emergency services are heard later in the video as the pair are checked to see if they're alive, while the car lay among rubble in Crowborough, East Sussex. After a pause, first responders are heard saying 'can you hear me' but get no answer. The pair, from Tunbridge Wells, Kent, had taken proscription and illegal drugs before they got in Michael's car and performed 'doughnuts' and sped through the streets. Kyle was driving but did not have a licence and the pair were killed instantly when they crashed leaving Michael's five-year-old daughter Lily-Rose Iris Owen without a dad
