A 15-year-old boy who was expecting a child has died following a horrific car crash involving an allegedly stolen vehicle.
Bryce Fahey, 15, and another boy, 14, had been in an allegedly stolen Mazda 6 sedan when they crashed into parked cars on Bungary Road, in Norah Head, on the NSW Central Coast, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Bryce died in the crash while his mate, who was found injured on the road, was rushed to hospital in a serious but stable condition.
The 15-year-old was part of a large family, and had a baby on the way with his girlfriend.
His heartbroken father Geof Fahey has shared a series of photos of Bryce and his siblings in the days since his son passed.

‘When you came along son my heart melted, as the years went by we had some awesome, amazing memories, fun trips and great holidays,’ he wrote.
‘Today would be the hardest day of my life. Getting that phone call, the dreaded call, to say your son has been in a car accident and it’s not good.
‘I went down and spent what time I had left with you my boy, letting you know I’m here. Go look for nan and pop.
‘The hardest day of my life, you must know. That one choice to go with your mate ended yours. Love you buddy, don’t ever forget it.
‘Waiting here is going to be a long wait but I’ll wait until we meet again, shine bright, light it up like you always do.’
Shattered loved ones have set up a GoFundMe to support Bryce’s parents, and the mother of his child.
‘No amount of money will lessen the heartbreak or pain they have to go through,’ the fundraiser read.
‘But will help Bryce’s beautiful family get through this really tough time.’
Others also shared heartfelt tributes to the teenager.
‘I have no words except what a great kid. He will be missed by anyone who knew him,’ one wrote.
Another friend said she was ‘so grateful’ for everything Bryce did for her and those around him.

‘Always having a smile on your face and lighting up the room with your funny personality,’ she said.
‘You will always be remembered as the sweetest, kind-hearted kid who never gave up when things got hard.
‘Your little one will be so proud of the person you were.’
One friend accused others of posting about Bryce’s death for ‘clout’.
‘You’re all fake, the reason he died is because he stuck to the code and didn’t snitch,’ they wrote.
‘He never has, he always had my back in every situation. He ran from the dogs with me and I’d do the same for him but the rest of you would all run to the cops.’
Bryce’s death comes after a man shared a TikTok claiming his mother’s car had been ‘hotwired and stolen’ by teenagers, with one of them killed in the crash.
‘This happened on her night out with the girls, she came home and someone had hotwired her car,’ Joel Durrington said.
NSW Police confirmed to Daily Mail Australia they are investigating reports the vehicle Bryce was in at the time of the crash had been reported stolen from a house in Buff Point.
Officers from the Crash Investigation Unit established a crime scene and are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash.
A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
