THE two men killed in an horrific car crash in Wyke are thought to be brothers.
The 27-year-old and 31-year-old men from Buttershaw in Bradford were in a Ford Focus which was torn in half when it hit a tree in Woodside Road just before midnight.
Onlookers said the two were brothers.
A police spokesman said the car failed to stop when requested by officers.
The incident will now be referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission by West Yorkshire Police.
People living nearby said they had heard a loud bang and seen emergency vehicles’ lights and the police helicopter.
Road closures are in place on Woodside Road junction with Huddersfield Road while the investigation continues.
