Teen dad to newborn among four killed in horror crash on way to watch Fury fight

Four men from the same family have died in a horror crash as they drove to watch the Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder fight, with one of them being a new dad, while another was a soon-to-be dad.

Johnboy Cash, 19, had a six-week old baby at home when he sadly lost his life in the early hours of Sunday morning on a remote country lane in Headcorn, Kent.

His father, John Cash, 44, was also among the victims, as well as 25-year-old 'Smiler Cash'.

The fourth man who passed away was named as Jacko Cosgrove, 18, who was expecting a child with his pregnant wife.

A 15-year-old who was also a passenger, was taken to a London hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Family members and friends have laid flowers at the scene and posted tributes to the four men, who are believed to be part of a nearby traveller community, the Sun reports.

A relative said: "We’re broken and we’ll never get over them being gone. They were lovely, lovely men and we’ll miss them everyday.”

Johnboy Cash and Jacko Cosgrove had both boxed at a local amateur boxing club when they were younger.

A family friend told the Sun: “It’s tragic. They were lovely kids. Full of life. Just boys wanting to be boys. They were respectable kids.”

Another mourner described John Cash as a "hard-working man with not a bad bone in his body", saying, "It was a big shock for all of us. Johnboy had a six-week-old baby. Jacko just found out his wife was having a little kid as well."

Undefeated British boxer Dennis McCann took a Instagram to share his own tribute of Johnboy.

He wrote: "One of my best friends my brother @johnboyxgracexcash love u cuz".
