'Mum did this for you': Teen brothers killed in Christchurch crash get burnout tribute

The mother of the two teenagers killed in a triple fatal crash in Christchurch following an abandoned police pursuit has done a burnout in their memory. 

Brothers Glen and Craig Mcallister, aged 16 and 13, were killed along with 13-year-old Brooklyn Taylor on Sunday.

The trio were fleeing from police when the stolen Mazda Familia they were in hit spikes laid by police, crashed into a tree and burst into flames on Blenheim Rd.

Their identities were confirmed by police on Tuesday. 

The brothers' mother Juanita Rose posted a video on Facebook of her doing a burnout in tribute of her sons.

"Mum did this for you two. The average chicky don't burn out like that haha bet u boys loved it [sic]," the post reads.

The video shows Juanita doing a burnout in a red Holden, leaving large skid marks on the road.

Near the end of the video, you can see the tyres have blown out from the incident. 

The vehicle the boys were in was travelling in excess of 130km/h in the Christchurch CBD when police began the pursuit, which lasted only one minute.

Police say they quickly abandoned the pursuit due to the dangerous way the vehicle was being driven. 

The officers then tried to save the teens from the wreck but couldn't due to the intense heat from the flames. 

The incident is the third fatal crash involving fleeing drivers in Christchurch in less than two months.

And police stand by their fleeing driver policy follwing the incident saying it is fit for purpose.

Juanita previously told Stuff she was in "severe shock" having learnt her sons had died and called them the "babies of her life". She wrote on Facebook "My beautiful baby boys... Sadly life dishes me incredible hurt like no other". 

Relations of Brooklyn Taylor have also been posting about their grave loss on social media. 

"We love you so f**king much boy," one relation wrote. 

The Independent Police Conduct Authority is investigating the incident.
