THE family of Kingswinford crash driver Joshua Parkes say they have been left "devastated at the loss of lives" following last Tuesday's tragedy in Bromley Lane.

Joshua, aged 21, was pronounced dead at the scene of the horrific crash on October 13 which also killed 16-year-old girls Lucy Tibbetts and Izzie Floyd and just a few days later claimed the life of Nathan Cartwright, aged 18, who was pulled from the wreckage by emergency workers and taken to Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The friends had been travelling in a Skoda Fabia, driven by Joshua, which hit a tree - leaving the vehicle unrecognisable.

His family said in a statement released by West Midlands Police today: “The whole family are devastated at the loss of lives.

"Our thoughts are with the other families involved at this dreadful time."

Specialist police officers continue to support the families and a spokesman for the force said: "No words can express their grief and our thoughts remain with them at this painful time."

Joshua's family said they were praying for Izzie Ramsell, now the only survivor of the crash, to make a full recovery.

Meanwhile, an online Go Fund Me page has been set up to raise money for 16-year-old Izzie.

Alexander Wilkes has set up the fundraiser and he said: "Izzie is still very much alive and fighting hard to recover, and everything needs to be done to ensure that she makes a full recovery - however long and hard the battle might be.

"She and her family need all the financial support possible to ensure the road to recovery is as smooth as possible, whether it’s covering the cost of routine bills and expenses while all of this is going on, or paying for the best treatments and therapies available to ensure that Izzie makes a full recovery."
