7:57am Thursday 11th July 2013 in News
The families of teenagers killed in a road collision last week have paid tribute to them.
Two teenagers died when their car left the road and collided with a tree in Slinford, Horsham, on July 5.
Asa Caudill, 19, of Arun Road, Billingshurst, a passenger in the Peugeot 306, died from his injuries on July 6 after being taken to St George's Hospital in London for emergency treatment.
The driver of the Peugeot, William Richardson, 18, of Hayes Lane, Slinfold, died at the scene.
Asa's family said: "Asa was the love of our lives. We are in the most agonising pain at losing him and cannot bear the thought of a future without him.
"His friends have put messages on Facebook saying what a funny, kind, witty boy he was and that he wasn't just a brother, he was a friend.
"Everyone has said his smile was what they remember of him most and his humour."
The family of William Richardson said: "William was a beautiful boy and will always be in our hearts."
Police and emergency services were called to the A264 Five Oaks Road near Fulfords Hill at around 8.10pm on July 5.
Two other passengers, an 18-year-old man from Billingshurst and a 17-year-old girl from West Chiltington were taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, one with serious but non life threatening injuries.
The 17-year-old girl suffered minor injuries.
Sergeant Alan Spicer the Sussex Police's Roads Policing Unit said: "All fatal road traffic collisions are tragic but even more so, when it involves young people just starting out in life."
