"Just watched Car Crash: Who’s Lying? on @netflix. It’s a stark reminder of the trauma that bad decisions & dangerous driving can cause," a second added.

"It begins with an alarming stat from @Brakecharity 'Young people are three times more likely to die in a car crash than from guns, knives & alcohol'."

"That poor mother.... what a mindf**k, I think I'd have no choice but to blame both of them as well, if it were me. It's so tragic when a young vibrant life is cut short so senselessly," a third commented on Reddit.

While a fourth said that 'stuff like this is why I insisted on pulling over to offer an official statement regarding an accident I had just witnessed'.

"The person at fault was 100 percent at fault, couldn't be any clearer. They still lied to police, because of course they did." they recalled about their own experience.

"Thankfully it as a very minor accident, but I saved someone a very expensive bill or two they would have received otherwise."

At the time of it's release, critic James Jackson wrote in an article for The Times: "Particularly striking was the way it pitched you right there on the crash scene through the replaying of police bodycam footage.

"The confusion of one of the surviving lads, dazed with shock, felt almost close to intrusiveness — except it was clear that lies were being told about who was driving."

Car Crash: Who’s Lying? is available to watch on Netflix now.
