A sign appeals for witnesses at the scene of a crash on Thursday night involving two cars during a gathering of vehicle enthusiasts in Stevenage, England, Friday July 19, 2019.

Sidhu says the crash involved a Nissan 350Z and a Toyota GT86.

Mr Sidhu told PA a small number of cars "went rogue" and left the auto park, where crowds lined the main road to capture footage of the vehicles at speed.

17 people have been injured after a high speed crash at a vehicle meet-up in the United Kingdom, according to police in Hertfordshire.

One organiser described the crash as "horrific" and a "nightmare".

Mr Sidhu said participants are urged to stay within the law, but that drivers are often tempted onto the roads in search of social media attention.
