Road death teens William Richardson and Asa Caudhill: Tributes paid
The families of two teenagers killed when their car crashed into a tree have paid tribute to them.
William Richardson, 18, of Hayes Lane, Slinford, was driving a Peugeot 306 when it hit a tree. His passenger Asa Caudill, 19, also died.
The family of Mr Richardson, who died at the scene, described him as a "beautiful boy".
And the family of Mr Caudill, who was from Arun Road, Billingshurst, said he was "the love of their lives".
The crash took place on 6 July on the A264 Five Oaks Road, in Slinfold, Horsham.
Mr Richardson's family said: "William was a beautiful boy and will always be in our hearts."
Mr Caudill died in hospital from his injuries.
His 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.
"Everyone has said his smile was what they remember of him most and his humour."
Sgt Alan Spicer, from Sussex Police, said: "All fatal road traffic collisions are tragic but even more so when it involves young people just starting out in life."
