“HE will be missed forever. Rest in peace, my darling.”
The family of an 11-year-old boy killed in a crash on the A303 in Wiltshire have paid tribute to the ‘deeply loved’ youngster.
He tragically died after a crash near Stonehenge at around 7.30pm on Saturday, July 8.
“As the youngest of three wonderful siblings, Charles was the golden-haired centre of our family,” the family said.
“We will miss his life-loving and caring nature every day. It is impossible to imagine the future without him.
“Charles was deeply loved by his family, his friends and our dog Lettice, who magically survived the deeply tragic accident.
“He will be missed and remembered forever. Rest in peace, my darling.”
Police said the crash, on the westbound stretch between the Countess Roundabout and Stonehenge, involved a black BMW and a lorry which was parked in a layby.
The driver of the car, a man in his 40s, and a 15-year-old boy, both from London, also suffered potentially life-threatening injuries in the incident.
The driver of the lorry was uninjured.
At the time, A/Insp Will Ayres, of Wiltshire Police’s Roads Policing Unit, said: “This is a tragic incident where a young boy has lost his life and two more people are in a serious condition in hospital.
“Their next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers. Our thoughts are with them at this very difficult time.
“I would urge anyone who witnessed anything to please get in touch with us.”
