Two sisters have been orphaned after their parents and uncle were killed by a pick-up truck on the wrong side of the road.
Yanna Kockova, her husband Marko Godla and her brother Tomas Kocko died in the head-on collision in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Police say the driver who hit their silver car was going down the wrong way of a slip road could have been under the influence of drink or drugs.
The married couple who are both thought to be 22 years old had two children – Nela, two and Rachael, one, reports Mail Online.
Sharing a tribute message on Facebook, Mr Godla’s cousin Milan Godla said: ‘Feeling sad and heartbroken after hearing news from my family this morning…. You will be missed. Rest in peace.’
Michael Rios added: ‘My two favourite cousins lost their lives in a serious car crash today… Fly high my angels. Gone buy never forgotten. I love you.’
Cambridge Police Federation chair Liz Groom shared her sympathies with the family on Twitter.
She said: ‘Thoughts with the families of those who have died.
‘Also with the officers and other emergency service colleagues who attended the incident and delivered the terrible messages to loved ones.
‘One of the hardest and most difficult parts of our job that you never forget.’
