After a tragic crash in Kent, England, four people are dead, and a 15-year-old boy survived but is fighting for his life.
At 12.54 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 10, Kent police were dispatched to the rural Headcorn region near Maidstone after a pick-up truck crash report.
The Metro reported that the bodies were discovered in a bronze Toyota Hilux that had slammed into some trees early in the morning.

A grieving member of the family paid tribute to his uncle, who was killed in the accident.
“He was a great, great man and I am broken I am still very confused and I am trying to find answers on why it happened,” he told a local outlet.
