A three-year-old boy has died just days after a motorway crash that also killed his four-year-old sister, family members have said.
The accident happened on the M4 westbound carriageway near Newport in South Wales, prompting a huge emergency services response on the afternoon of Saturday 5 February.
Four-year-old Gracie-Ann Wheaton, from Tredegar, died in hospital in the early hours the following day, while her three-year-old brother remained critically ill in hospital.
A GoFundMe page set up to take donations for Gracie-Ann’s funeral has since been updated by cousin Jamie Lucas, who said the little boy had also died.
The “wonderful” youngster, who has been described as having a “kind soul”, cannot be named for legal reasons.
A family member told the PA news agency: “Unfortunately, after a week of fighting, he has passed away.
“He was wonderful, creative and a kind soul. Turned the grey skies blue.”
The GoFundMe page set up in the aftermath of the crash has raised almost £10,000.
