Four members of the same family who were killed in a car accident on Saturday night while driving to watch the Tyson Fury match have been honored.

Jonny Cash, 44, his son Johnboy Cash, 19, Miles ‘Smiler’ Cash, 22, and Jacko Cosgrove, 18, were on their way to see the Brit fighter in the world heavyweight title fight Deontay Wilder as the vehicle they were in drove wrong.

Only Jerry Cash, 15, who rode with them survived.

He is now fighting for his life in the hospital, according to heartbroken relatives who posted on social media, Kent Live reports.

“Last night, my lovely husband and two sons went out with two nephews to watch the Tyson Fury fight, like a thousand times they went out before,” she wrote.

“Only this time they did not come to our house.

“Yesterday I was the richest woman in the world, I had everything a woman could only dream of. And today I am the poorest woman in the world.

“My lovely husband and two beautiful babies are gone, just like that, in an instant, my whole world is completely upside down.
