Sister's heart-felt tribute to 'beautiful and kind' taxi crash victim

A SISTER of 43-year-old Lucy Davis who was among six who died in a horror crash in Birmingham has paid tribute on Facebook.

The woman died alongside 42-year-old partner Lee Jenkins in a taxi as they headed home after a night out early on Sunday morning.

Sister Alison Worth, posted a message from Barston this morning. It states: “As some of you already know it was my beautiful kind lovely sister Lucy who died in the taxi on Saturday night when she and her boyfriend Lee had ended a lovely day and evening out with friends.

Life is cruel.

The pain we are enduring is almost unbearable.

Please people always be kind, as you just never know what will happen next.

They were in a taxi as they wouldn’t think of driving.

They were wearing seatbelts as Lulu wouldn’t get in a car if the seatbelts didn’t work.

They were happy. They were great together and had so many plans.

You will always be in my heart and my thoughts.

I miss you so much x”

The couple’s taxi driver Imtiaz Mohammed, aged 33, was also pronounced dead at the scene.

And the three men travelling in an Audi car that collided with the cab have been formally named as Kasar Jehangir (25), Tauqeer Hussain (26) and 30-year-old Mohammed Fasha.

A 22-year-old friend, also a passenger in the car, remains in hospital in a serious condition, police said today.

West Midlands Police crash investigators continue to probe the cause of the collision that happened in Lee Bank Middleway at 1.10am.

A tribute issued by the family of Lucy Davis, from Kingstanding, reads: “Lucy was a beautiful and fun-loving mother, daughter, sister, auntie and friend who brought happiness to the lives of all she met. Rest in Peace our Lady in Red.”

Sergeant Alan Hands, from the force’s Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our investigations continue as we work to establish exactly what happened. We have spoken to several drivers and potential witnesses but would still like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and has not yet spoken to us.

“Our Family Liaison Officers are supporting relatives of the bereaved at this tragic time and our thoughts remain with them.

“We have done our utmost to respect the grieving families’ wishes for privacy with regards to releasing casualty details – but as names of the deceased are now already in the public domain, and to avoid further speculation, it is now right for us to formally confirm the names of the victims.”

Post mortem examinations on three of the victims were carried out yesterday (Mon 18 Dec) with the others being completed today.

Anyone with information can call the Collision Investigation Unit on 101; quoting log 175 of 17/12. Alternatively email fl_collision_invest@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk
