Five people, including three children, have died after a stolen car crashed into a tree in Leeds.
The youngest victim was a 12-year-old boy, West Yorkshire Police said. Two 15-year-old boys and two men aged 24 and 28 also died.
Officers were called to Stonegate Road in the Meanwood area of the city at 9:54pm on Saturday.
Two 15-year-old boys are being held in custody on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
A spokesman for the police said officers were confronted by a scene of “complete carnage” when they arrived at the crash site.
Two people were pronounced dead at the scene and three died a short time later at hospital.
Det Ch Insp Jim Griffiths said:
“This is clearly a tragic incident in which five young people have lost their lives.”
Police believe that all seven were in the same vehicle – a Renault Clio but later said “Whether they were all in the car or whether some of [the victims] were pedestrians we can’t say at this point in time.”
