The driver of a car accident that killed five teenagers has been charged with five counts of dangerous driving resulting in death and refused bail.

Tyrell Edwards, 18, has been charged by police with allegedly dangerous driving after five teenagers between the ages of 14 and 16 were killed in a horror car accident on Tuesday night.

Police believe the Nissan Navara in which the teens were driving ran off the road, flipped on its side and crashed into a tree.

Emergency services tried to treat Antonio Desisto, Tyrese Bechard, Summer Williams, Lily Van De Putte and Gabriella McLennan when they arrived at the crash, but they all tragically died on the spot.

He was released from the hospital at 1.50pm on Wednesday and taken to the Narellan Police Station, where he was charged.

The horror crash has sent shockwaves through the tight-knit town of Buxton as the devastated locals try to make sense of the tragedy.

Bouquets of flowers and handwritten notes have been left by Picton High students at the base of the tree the ute collided with just after 8pm last night.

Shattered loved ones and locals visited the accident site Wednesday morning, with photos showing many sobbing and embracing each other as they bid farewell to the five teens.
