Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
The devastated family of a 21-year-old man who died in a car crash in Berkshire have paid tribute to him.
Kyle McCants was a passenger in a vehicle which hit a telegraph pole on Monday, in Binfield, near Bracknell.
Mr McCants, who was born in the US and became a British citizen last year, was described as possessing an "extraordinary passion for life".
The driver, 26, from Hertfordshire, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and bailed.
Mr McCants, a bar tender, was pronounced dead at the scene after the Alfa Romero left Forest Road and crashed.
He was born in Houston, Texas and then held a Canadian passport from the age of three.
In a statement, his family said he was "very proud" to be a part of all three countries, but his loyalty was demonstrated by his firm decision to remain in the UK.
"The light within Kyle McCants, however, can never be lifted away from our hearts," they added.
"He completely and unreservedly loved his family, his friends, and his dog Jake.
"The outpouring of huge emotion at his passing confirmed to us that his friends loved him too.
"Kyle will be missed. We miss him already, and we always will.
"We only hope that we will learn Kyle's lesson and treat our loved ones with the same love and respect.
"Kyle worked locally as a bar tender and not only loved his job, but also the friends he worked with.
"He was a fun-loving, friendly, happy lad who will be sorely missed by all his friends and family."
