A 21-YEAR-OLD man who died after his car crashed into a tree and caught fire has been named locally.

A man believed to be Jack Maund was killed in the tragic incident on Buckle Street, between Bidford-upon-Avon and Honeybourne, at about 4.40pm on Tuesday.

West Mercia Police are yet to formally identify the 21-year-old.

Tributes have been paid to Jack on social media following the heartbreaking news.

One said: “R.I.P Jack Maund gone way too soon but never forgotten. So many memories back in the day when we was younger. Fly high babe sleep tight.”

Another said: “R.i.p bro never gonna be forgotten bro.”

He was driving the silver Ford Focus and was towing a Proton Savvy which crashed into the tree and caught fire.

The 21-year-old was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When emergency services arrived they were faced with a car fire following the collision.

“Sadly, nothing could be done to save the driver of the car who was confirmed dead on scene.”

Police closed off the road at the crossroads of Cleeve Road and Welford Road to the crossroads of Buckle Street and Blake’s Hill for several hours.

Investigating officers from West Mercia Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident or for people who saw the car before the crash to come forward.

Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101, quoting incident number 549S of Tuesday, September 19.
