"Two teenage girls were killed when their car hit a deer during the morning rush hour.
The girls, aged 17 and 18, died at the scene after their Citroen C1 struck the wild animal and then collided with a Volvo V40 before bursting into flames.
The A10 near Ware in Hertfordshire was closed so police could investigate what happened in the fatal accident, which took place at about 7.45am this morning.
The driver of the Volvo was taken to hospital with leg injuries.
Motoring and wildlife groups have repeatedly warned road users of the dangers that can be posed by deer straying on to busy roads.
More than 450 people are injured and several killed every year in the UK as a result of accidents involving deer. Road collisions are also estimated to cost the lives of 74,000 of the animals.
Six main species of deer live wild in Britain, with an estimated combined population of more than 1.5 million."
My heart goes out to their nearest & dearest
