TRIBUTES have been paid to a young Bradford man following his tragic death after a car crash last week.

Junayd Haris, 20, who lived in the Manningham area, was rushed to hospital following last Wednesday's crash, which happened at the junction of Haworth Road and Chellow Grange Road.

Three cars - a grey Mercedes, a red Toyota and a white Audi were involved.

Another 20-year-old and two 19-year-olds were trapped in the Audi after it turned on its roof and also suffered serious injuries.

Junayd's funeral date has yet to be confirmed, but due to government guidelines amid the Covid-19 crisis, only immediate family will be permitted to attend.

An outpouring of tributes have been left following the announcement of the sad news on Sunday.

A number of messages were left in an online Book of Condolence set up by the Telegraph & Argus to provide a space for people to pay their respects.

One, left by Moorside Pharmacy, said: "We would like to give our condolences to the family of Junayd.

"We have very fond memories of him from when he worked with us and are very upset by what happened. We will cherish all the memories of him. Love from all the staff at Moorside Pharmacy."

Another said: "Was a good lad, open hearted and very, very funny. Very bad day for the bradford youngsters that knew him."

Lucy Fitzpatrick added: "RIP Junayd. Such a kind-hearted lad. You will be missed so much. Thoughts and prayers with all family."

And Tahir Shah said: "Words can't express how much you meant to us all, gone but never forgotten. Rest in peace bro."

Junayd attended the former Samuel Lister Academy in Cottingley. He had just completed an engineering access course at Bradford College and was looking forward to going to university.

The crash, which happened at 8pm on Wednesday, led to a huge response from emergency services.

Isma Hussain, who lives on Chellow Grange Road, said it was "horrifying" and left her and others at the scene in tears.

She added: "It was a horrific event and has left us all shook. I didn’t see the crash, me and my mum were sat downstairs having tea when we heard the loudest bang ever. There has been work going on behind our house and we honestly thought one of the big machines had toppled over or something.

"We saw it as soon as it happened. Within a couple of minutes, there were around 10 people surrounding the white Audi car and trying to find a way to get the boys out.

"It was the worst thing I’ve ever seen. No one thought about social distancing. Everyone ran to help these boys to get them out of the car. It was astonishing and such a proud moment.

"No one thought about themselves, no one thought about social distancing."

Police want to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision itself, saw any of the vehicles prior to the collision, or have any dash cam footage that may help the investigation.

Enquires show the Audi on Brantwood Oval and Brantwood Drive immediately prior to the collision.
