Ciaran was hospitalized but died shortly afterwards.

In just three days, an online crowdfunding campaign raised more than £ 25,000 to support his family.

The organizers had hoped to get £ 2,000 for his funeral but quickly exceeded their goal.

On Tuesday, James Paul Davis appeared at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court accused of causing death by dangerous driving.

The 34-year-old from Walsall was also accused of driving without insurance, not stopping at the site of the collision and not reporting it.

He was arrested in nearby Bloxwich shortly after the crash.

Davis has been placed in custody until he appears before Wolverhampton Crown Court on May 4th.

Ciaran’s parents paid him tribute, saying, “Mommy’s and Papa’s hearts will always ache, we love you more than anything.

“We couldn’t keep you long, but we’re glad we had the opportunity to meet you, take care of you, and call you our son. Fly up angels.”

Detectives continue their investigation into the crash.

West Midlands Police Sergeant Mark Crozier said: “We are continuing to investigate the circumstances that led to the tragic death of Ciaran and we have technical officers in contact with his parents to keep them informed of any new developments.

“We’re still excited to hear from everyone who has been in the area who may have dash cam footage before or at the time of the collision.”
