An attempt at taking a selfie was the likely reason for a car crash that claimed the lives of two teenagers, one of the survivors has said.

Four people were traveling in a car which tumbled over near the town of Sliven on Sunday. A 14-year-old girl and a 18-year-old boy, both in the back seats, died in the incident, while the driver, 18, is in hospital with a serious head injury.

Relatives of a girl traveling next to him, however, told private NOVA TV station that a camera flash from the back seats distracted the driver who then lost control of the vehicle.

The girl itself, in tenth grade, has not suffered serious injuries.
