Loving Tributes Left for Two Men Killed in a Car Crash
More than two dozen floral tributes have been left for two young men killed in a fatal car crash. Family and friends have mourned the loss of Muhammedabdullah Patel, aged 22, and Ammar Ingar, aged 21, who died on Saturday. The accident occurred on Hastings Road, Northfields, Leicester.
Former school friends from Gateway College in Hamilton even left tributes to the men, who were referred to as Ammar Shah and Abz Patel.
One heartfelt note at the scene reads, “To my beloved Abz, I’ll miss you always and forever. Love from your wife, Ayesha Xxx.”
Another says, “To Ammar, may your soul rest in peace bro. You’re in a better place now.”
The floral tribute also included a message from a grieving friend which said, “Rest in peace Abz and Ammar. Gone from this Earth but never forgotten, you will be missed. Was a pleasure to have known you both. Love from Jamie.”
A statement from Gateway College said that staff and students had been, “shocked and saddened by the news about the tragic car accident.” They referred to Ammar as a “quiet, friendly and pleasant young man”.
A tribute from the college said, “Staff have fond memories of him and referred to him being jolly, pleasant and having a good sense of humour, always being prepared to make students laugh.
“However, he was also well mannered and could be very helpful. He had a good relationship with students and staff.
“He often made excellent contributions in class, was keen to learn and was a conscientious student. It seemed clear that he was a team player who was starting to show leadership qualities in group settings.”
Ammar, from Northfields, had just celebrated his 21st birthday, while Muhammedabdullah, of Highfields, was to be married in a few months. Four other people were taken to hospital following the crash involving two cars, three of them remain in serious condition. The police have not released details of other injured people.
Accident investigators are still trying to assess what happened on that night and are appealing for witnesses to come forward. Anyone with information can call the police on 101.
