The two teenagers tragically killed in a horror car accident in Adelaide yesterday were on a determined journey to study medicine at university, together.

The aspiring doctors were returning home from a tutoring session for a university admission exam when their car crashed into a tree.

The pair were best friends and students at the Heights School in Modbury Heights.

One of the boys has been identified as Zarif Rahman, who’s parents are also doctors.

Athelstone community member Masudur Rahman said the incident is a huge loss for everyone.

“It’s a big severe loss for the family as well as for the whole community, and the nation as well,” Rahman said.

Both teenagers inside the vehicle on Montacute Road were just minutes from their homes in Athelstone and Rostrover.

Friends of Zarif’s family say he was a big brother and adored by his friends.

“He’s very gentle, very loving, very caring, he was very popular among the mates, and he was very helping to others as well,” said Dr Mohammad Wazid.

Detectives are still investigating whether speed was a factor in the crash.

Today, dozens of flowers were left at the scene of the crash in remembrance of the lives lost.
