They have been identified as Luke Dillion, 18, and 21-year-old O'Brien Tapper.



It is reported that the crash happened at 1:15 p.m.



The students were heading towards the Harbour View round-a-bout when their car collided with a Mitsubishi Pajero which was heading towards the airport.



Fire personnel spent several minutes trying to pry the bodies from the mangled hatch-back Honda Civic motorcar in which the two were travelling.



The incident caused a slowdown of traffic as passersby tried to get a glimpse.



The circumstances that led to the crash have not yet been reported.
