"The 12-year-old who had been crossing Brett Street when the incident happened was airlifted to hospital with serious head injuries. He sadly died this morning."

The boy's father Stuart Swift was killed in a car accident at Carnaby 11 years ago, and in September last year his stepfather Andy Tolley, Katie's husband, died in a motorbike crash at Bempton.

Now a GoFundMe page has been created to help pay for the memorial service of Taylor, one of four siblings.

The online fund, set up by family friend Sherri Miller, has seen over £6,000 donations in the first 36 hours.

Sherri wrote on the page: “As everyone may be aware Katie Jo Tolley lost her little boy which is ever parents worst nightmare, totally devastated for the family to be going through this for the third time now after Taylor’s dad passed in a car accident 11 years ago and his step dad passed away 6 months ago in a motorbike accident.

“I am raising money for Katie to be able to lay her son to rest without the stress of money, all contributions will be much appreciated.”

Taylor was a pupil at Bridlington School. A tribute is being arranged for him. His loved ones are intending to release balloons in his memory from the fields close to his home in Gypsey Road.
