Driver Dafydd Hûw Craven-Jones (18) and passenger Morgan Jones (17), both of Wrexham, were both killed on Saturday (25 May) in a single-vehicle collision on Cannock Road

The backseat passengers of the vehicles, two 17-year-old girls, remain in hospital – one of which is in critical condition. 

Dafydd Hûw’s family have stated that he was “helping” his friend at the time of the crash. 

They continued: “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.”

Morgan Jones was described as being popular and a promising sportsman. 

His family stated: “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.”

Investigations into the collision are still ongoing and specialist officers are supporting the victim’s families. 

“We ask that their privacy is respected. A full and detailed investigation is now under way to establish the cause of the collision,” stated Sgt Richard Moors.
