THE FAMILY of a six-year-old boy killed in a road accident have paid tribute to the youngster.

Jayden Nash, from Faringdon, died at the John Radcliffe Hospital on February 15 – ten days after he was involved in a collision with a car in Watchfield.

In a statement released yesterday, his family thanked people for their support following his death.

The statement read: “The family of Jayden James Nash would like to thank everyone for their kind messages.

“Jayden was the absolute light of our lives and lit up the room with his beautiful smile.

“He was a very kind and happy little boy and we will all be eternally grateful that he blessed our lives.”

Jayden, of Marlborough Close in Faringdon, had just got off a bus when he was involved in a collision with a white Audi Q5 in Faringdon Road, Watchfield, at about 8.20am on February 5.

A post-mortem revealed he died from a severe traumatic brain injury. An inquest into his death was opened last week and adjourned to a date to be set.
