Two teenagers who were best of friends and shared the same birthday, died on the same day as well when the car they were riding in crashed into a wall late on Friday.

Lily Godwin and Abbey Rogers - born on June 30, 1995 – lived in Lyndhurst, England. On the unfortunate night, the two were passengers in a sports car Mazda RX-8, when it hit the wall and they died.

The car hit a wall in New Forest in Gosport Lane, Lyndhurst.

The two girls were enjoying a night out at the Stag Hotel in the area. Lily worked behind the bar in the hotel. A 21-year-old man driving the sports car picked them up that night and within half a mile from the pub, the car hit a wall on a 30 mph road. 

There were four people in the car. The driver and another 19-year-old woman are being treated in a local hospital, BBC reports.

During a prayer service at a church in honour of the two women, Reverend James Bruce said that the entire village was under "profound shock".

Lily's grandfather, 82-year-old Robin Butterfield said that it must have been fate as the two girls "were best of friends" and Abbey lived just "walking distance from her home".

"They were best friends. They were born on the same day and sadly died on the same day. The family is completely devastated, especially her younger sister Connie.It was only walking distance from her home but she decided to get into the car. She was a very happy and sensible girl and was studying to be fully qualified in childcare at college. It has had a huge impact on the family - everyone is distraught. You see these sights on the roadside and you never think it's going to be you do you? And one day it is," he said, Mirror reports.

Meanwhile, boyfriends of the two girls took to the social media to grieve their loss. While Abbey's boyfriend Allix Dyson said that he was "so lost" without her, Lily's partner Kane Parnell said that his "heart bleeds" without her.

Parents of the two girls are too disturbed to comment. No arrests have been made in connection with the accident as yet.
