Families "grateful" for support after Stirling crash

The families of two teenagers killed in a crash in Stirling say they are "forever" grateful for the support they've received.

Nearly £20,000 has been donated via a GoFundMe page to the parents of 19-year-old Kyle Marshall and 17-year-old Jayden McConnell.

They died when their car collided with a lorry near Bannockburn on Sunday.

The statement on the GoFundMe page reads:

"After being approached my a number of people asking if there was a way of donating to help both families as a mark of respect towards the boys at this tragic time I gained permission from both boys family to set this up.

As alot of people will know by now about the tragic road traffic incident that happened on Sunday 17th March up at the services in Stirling.

2 young boys lost their life’s in this crash one being one of my own and the other boy being his best friend.

Words can’t describe how devastated we all are at this tragedy and how much life’s have been affected. This is literally every parents worst nightmare especially at such a young age with their full life’s ahead of them both.

however much is raised will be split equally between Kyle’s family and Jayden’s family.

Both boys mums are very grateful for all the love and support they have been shown since loosing their boys and want everyone to know they will be forever thankful."
