A tribute has been paid to four members of an Irish family who died in a horrific car accident in the UK yesterday morning.
Father and son Johnny, 44, and Jonboy Cash, 19, died along with Jaco Cosgrove, 18, and Miles Smeller Cash, 22, when a Toyota Hilux left the road and crashed into a tree.
A 15-year-old boy in the car survived the accident and was taken to a hospital in London with serious head injuries.
The scene of the tragedy today saw flowers and honors as one of the men’s wives left a bouquet of white roses.
“To my baby I love you so much,” it wrote in a note.
She had to be reassured by friends when she collapsed at the scene.
Those honoring the day also carved the men’s initials into the tree where one man remembered Johnny Cash as “always making you laugh, life of the party.”
Family members said the men were in their home watching Tyson Fury fight when the accident occurred in thick fog.
Rising boxer Dennis McCann also paid tribute on social media to one of the dead.
The undefeated bantamweight promoted by Frank Warren posted a picture of himself with John Cash.
It contains the message: “One of my best friends, my brother, I love you because you are.”
A nearby resident recounted how he was woken by a loud bang, followed by the arrival of emergency crews.
He said, “The whole road was full of blue lights – they had been there all night. It was very, very foggy along the way and it’s been the last few nights.”
Police were called at 12.54 a.m. to Lynham Road, Cape Cape, after the crash of a bronze-colored Toyota Hilux.
Officers attended with the Southeast Coast Ambulance Service and announced the deaths of four people who were inside the vehicle at the scene.
The men lived in nearby Martin Gardens and were traveling in a Broadoak paving vehicle.
The Police Serious Collision Investigation Unit, which has been at the scene for more than 12 hours, is calling for any witnesses to be contacted.
One of the men, who asked not to be named, said that one of the men was his uncle and he found out first thing this morning what had happened.
“He was a great guy,” he said, “and I’m devastated, and I’m still very confused trying to find answers as to why it happened.”
