Tributes were today paid to two men who died in a car crash in West Bromwich. The victims were today named locally as Mandip Singh Khangura and Sukbir Singh Rana.
Around a dozen bouquets have been left at the roadside near Handsworth Cemetery on Park Lane where the tragedy happened. The men were thrown from the Honda Civic after the car hit railings.
Following this impact the car flipped over in the accident which took place at around 10pm on Wednesday.
A 28-year-old man suffered a serious head injury and died at the scene and a 23-year-old man died later in hospital. Both victims are believed to be from Handsworth.
One floral tribute read: “Can’t believe your’e gone, miss you already, in our heads always.” Another read: “G.B.N.F sadly missed by all of us.” Friends of the men have also taken to the micro blogging site Twitter to express their shock.
Harpinder Mehmi wrote: “RIP Mando and Sukh! I am so gutted to hear that two lads from Handsworth have died in a severe car accident today.”
An Amrit tweeted: “RIP Lil Sukh and Mando! Gone but never forgotten!!!”
A Kam also wrote: “Heart goes out to Sukh and Mani’s families. Far too young. RIP.”
Last night a group of the men’s friends gathered at the crash scene to remember the two men, but were too upset to talk.
Police believe the men were heading along Park Lane, approaching the junction with Camp Lane, when the Honda Civic struck the metal barriers and flipped.
The Collision Investigation Unit of West Midlands Police is investigating, and have urged any witnesses to come forward.
