The families of two teenagers who tragically lost their lives in a car crash have paid heartfelt tributes to them. Dafydd Huw Craven-Jones, 18, from Tanyfron, Wrexham, and Morgan Jones, 17, from Coedpoeth, Wrexham, died following a collision in Penkridge, Staffordshire just before midnight on Saturday, May 25.

The circumstances surrounding the crash are still under investigation by the police. The teenagers were travelling on Cannock Road in a Ford Ka when the incident occurred. Two 17 year old girls involved in the accident remain in hospital with one in a critical condition, reports North Wales Live.

Dafydd Huw Craven-Jones' family have released a statement paying tribute to him. It said: "He was a beautiful soul, a wonderful son, brother, uncle, grandson and family member to all that knew him. Dafydd was the kindest loving person you could wish to meet, he had his special ways and was different to anyone else."

"Everyone loved him, the baby of the family. Daf would do anything for anyone, albeit moan if he had to tidy his bedroom. He loved his friends more than life itself, and disastrously, this led to his early departure from this world whilst helping a friend on this dreadful night."

"We can take solace that Dafydd would always go out of his way to help his friends. We just want to thank his friends for all the wonderful messages and memories they have shared of him and that his short life was filled with lots of love and happiness. We ask that our privacy is respected at this sad time. But we thank everyone for their kind messages of support."

Morgan Jones' family shared: "Our loving son and grandson, Morgan, was a kind caring and loving young man who we were so proud of. He was an outdoor person who excelled in rugby, cricket, horse riding and show jumping."

"He will be sadly missed by all his rugby, cricket and equestrian family and his family and friends. He was passionate about farming and had secured a place at an agricultural college. He was a very popular young man and was loved by everybody. You will be forever missed, Mum, Dad, Taid and Aunt."
