An 18-year-old boy has become the fourth victim of a tragic crash that killed three others after their car ploughed into a tree.

Nathan Cartwright was left critically injured after the yellow Skoda Fabia hit a tree in Kingswinford, West Midlands, and killed two schoolgirls and the car’s 21-year-old driver on Tuesday.

Nathan and 16-year-old Izzie Ramsey were rushed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham but Nathan died four days later.

In an emotional tribute to her son, Nathan’s mother said: ‘My gorgeous boy Nath taken way too soon. You lived your short life to the full. You are at peace now.

‘I would also like to thank the emergency services and the QE Hospital for saving his life and giving me the chance to say goodbye to him.’

A GoFundMe page has been set up to give Nathan ‘the send off he deserves’, which reached half of its £2,000 target within 24 hours.

The page said ‘heaven truly has gained an angel’ and tributes have been pouring in for the teenager, with some remembering Nathan’s ‘contagious smile’ that will ‘never be forgotten’.

Driver Joshua Parkes, 21, and backseat passengers Lucy Tibbets and Izzie Floyd, both 16, were pronounced dead at the scene after paramedics and an air ambulance rushed to the accident just before 9pm on Tuesday.

Izzie, who was also in the backseat of the vehicle, remains in a stable condition in hospital.

Fundraisers set up in memory of the three other victims have raised almost £10,000 in total.

West Midlands Police said officers had seen the Skoda Fabia just before the crash – but did not speak with the occupants or pursue the vehicle.

Sergeant Dan Casweel previously said: ‘This is a tragic time for the families of those involved, and we have specially trained officers who will be supporting them through the difficult time ahead.

‘I’d urge anyone who saw the Skoda driving in the area last night, or who may have captured anything on dash-cam footage, to get in touch with us as soon as possible.’
