Boy, 10, killed on birthday along with sister, 4, in 'drink-drive' crash just hours after family party

A BOY was killed on his 10th birthday along with his little sister in a "drink-drive" crash just hours after celebrating with his family.

Heartbreaking pictures show Smaller McCann, 10, standing next to his birthday cake and balloon hours before the fatal collision between a lorry and car in Buckinghamshire.

Family members were filmed singing happy birthday to Smaller as he gleamed and proudly pointed at himself during the celebrations.

His little sister stood by his side joining in on the sing-a-long.

Smaller and four-year-old Lilly were passengers in a white Vauxhall Astra that collided with a lorry near Milton Keynes at around 11.10pm on Monday.

The much-loved siblings sadly died in the collision – as hundreds of tributes have flooded in for the "beautiful angels."

Speaking about the 10-year-old's birthday tragedy, one cousin wrote: "Barely went ten years old yesterday. Please god why is this world so cruel."

And another friend of the family wrote: "Heartbreaking. It would draw a tear from a stone looking at them poor babies faces.

"Was his birthday yesterday just look at their beautiful little faces this world is so cruel."

Paying tribute to the boy, another said: "Love you Smaller so much.

"Most harmless person I'd ever met. Like my own little brother rared up with me.

"I'll miss you every day my boy I love you."

A 35-year-old woman from Derby has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and driving over the legal alcohol limit.

Heartbroken family and friends took to Facebook to pay tribute to the brother and sister last night.

One wrote: "Life is cruel to take them away from my lovely brother.

"Best old father in the world, he put them first no matter how hard he hit they were his life please god give him the strength."

And the children's aunt said: "RIP my perfect little niece and nephew.

"Aunt Elizabeth’s old pet Smaller and me little frilly Lilly.

"Love you always and forever and never in this lifetime will you ever be forgotten, always loved."

A friend of the family added: "Mortal divine RIP beautiful angels.


"So sorry for your loss, their poor mommy and daddy."

Paying tribute to Lilly and Smaller, one of their cousins wrote: "Can't believe I'm even writing this but rest in peace to my two beautiful little cousins Smaller and Lilly.

"I love you with all my heart. I love you so much this don't even feel real.

"What has this world come to, hearts in bits. RIP my babies."

Another child passenger in the Astra and the driver were taken to hospital but have since been discharged.

The driver of the HGV was uninjured.

Sergeant Dominic Mahon, of Thames Valley Police, said: “My thoughts remain with the family of the two children who sadly died at this extremely difficult time.

“We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed this collision or anyone who may have dash-cam footage that may have captured what happened or either of the vehicles prior to the collision to please get in touch.

“You can make a report by calling 101 or online, quoting reference 43210356500.”
