A horrific car crash near Eastbourne, Sussex, claimed the lives of three men on February 13, including a brother who donated a kidney to save his sister’s life. Daniel Davies, 21, Jonny Day, 32, and Jon ‘Tommy’ Miller, 36, all died at the scene after their vehicle was involved in a collision. Two men, aged 38 and 40, driving a Range Rover sport, have been arrested on suspicion of murder.


Tommy, who saved his sister’s life by giving her a kidney, was called a “hero” by his family. His loved ones described him as “one of a kind,” “funny,” “smart,” and someone who “had the biggest heart.” The Davies family expressed their heartbreak in a statement, saying, “Our Tommy was truly one of a kind – he was funny, smart and had the biggest heart. He was loved by so many and he impacted everyone who knew him.”

The families of Daniel, Jonny, and Tommy, who were all from Berkshire, are being supported by specialist officers. The partner of Jonny said, “Jonny was the person who lit up any room. He was so loved by everyone that met him. A loving partner, father, son, and brother, we will miss him endlessly. As his partner, I have lost my whole life.”


While the investigation into the incident is ongoing, police have identified a second vehicle, a silver Citroen, which they believe may have also hit their vehicle shortly before the fatal crash. The two arrested men have been released on conditional bail, and officers are still appealing for witnesses to come forward.

The Davies family paid tribute to Daniel, saying, “Rest in peace angel, we love you so much – sleep tight. We all loved you so much, precious Dan Dan.” His older brother added, “Fly high, little bro. I hope Heaven gives you the best bed up there until we meet again – your big bro, Smallz.” Daniel’s best friend, who had known him for 16 years, also shared a message, saying, “Since the day I met you 16 years ago, you have been my brother and my best friend. I love you with all my heart brother, and we’re always thinking of you.”


Police are asking anyone who witnessed the collision, saw any suspicious driving in the area around that time, or has relevant CCTV, doorbell, or dashcam footage to contact them online or via 101, quoting Operation Brinmore. Detective Superintendent Till Sanderson said, “This is a fast-moving, complex investigation into an incident in which three men sadly lost their lives. I would like to extend my condolences to their families and next of kin, who are being supported by specialist officers. Enquiries are ongoing to establish the exact circumstances around Monday’s events, and there will continue to be an increased police presence in the area.”

The families of Daniel, Jonny, and Tommy, along with their friends and loved ones, are in mourning as they come to terms with the tragic loss of their loved ones. Their legacy as kind-hearted, funny, and brave individuals who touched the lives of those around them will live on. As the investigation continues, the hope is that answers will be found and justice will be served for those who lost their lives too soon.
