Tributes have been pouring in for three teenagers from Doncaster who died in a tragic car accident in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Antonia Browne, 14, Michael Gallagher, 16, and Tom Hughes, 15, were killed when their Honda Civic car tore into two after leaving the A630 between Conisbrough and Warmsworth near Doncaster in South Yorkshire around 4.30am.
Tom’s family have told of their “devastation” at the loss of their “gentle giant who always put others first… a model son.”
Antonia’s family have told of a beautiful person “on the inside as well as the outside (who) had a passion for music and made everyone around her happy.”
Headmaster Paul Gray, of McAuley Catholic High School where Antonia and Michael were pupils has spoken of how “shaken the Catholic community has been by their untimely loss.”
Pippa Dodghson, headteacher at Hall Cross School in Doncaster where Tom was a pupil has expressed her sadness for a pupil who “greatly contributed to school life and had a great academic future ahead of him.”
Police are still appealing for sightings of the silver Honda Civic and continue to study CCTV in a bid to reveal a cause of the crash.
