The family of a child who died after being hit by a car have released another picture of their “beautiful boy” in a heartfelt tribute.
Twelve-year-old Tyler Wills, of Arnfield Close in Crawley, was reported to be on his way home from school around 2.45pm on Friday when he was hit by a car on Crawley Avenue in Crawley.
He was taken to the hospital by paramedics, where he died.
His family released a statement this afternoon.
It read: “Our beautiful boy Tyler – he was the most caring, loving and kind boy.
“He made his family so proud; he will be loved and missed forever. Our beautiful boy, I hope you’re high when you kick this ball.
“We love you more than words will ever say.
“Mom loves you.”
Flowers, tributes and a picture of Tyler were placed near the crash site, and candles and teddy bears were placed on railings nearby.
A fundraiser was also set up to give him “the best farewell he deserves”.
It has already reached £9,000, which will pay for funeral expenses and a headstone.
Tyler, attending Ifield Community College, crossed the street near a flooded underpass.
Workers were at the underpass this morning to empty it.
Sussex Police said no arrests had been made and the driver pulled over at the scene after the accident.
