A father has said that his son’s tragic death has ‘left a hole that will never be filled’.

Sarfaraz Younas, 28, of Marlow Avenue, Luton, was driving on the A505 between the A5 and the first Eaton Bray junction shortly before 6am on September 4, when his car left the road and veered into a ditch.

Emergency services were called and paramedics gave CPR to the injured motorist by the side of the road.

Mr Younas was operated on after being taken to hospital, but was sadly pronounced dead shortly after 2pm.

At the time of the incident Mr Younas was travelling to work at vehicle dealership Car Shop on Grovebury Road, Leighton Buzzard.

The 28-year-old’s father Younas Khan told the Luton News: “I can’t describe the feeling, it was such a huge shock for us.

“He used to call me three or four times a day so I keep thinking he will still ring me at some point. My wife is devastated.”

“We expected him to be at work when the police arrived at our door and told us there was a slim chance he would survive.”

Mr Younas – who is the father of a nine-year-old boy – grew up in Luton and attended Dallow Primary School and Challney High School for Boys.

His father added: “He was a very good person, very clever and very sharp.

“He had just got a new contract with the Car Shop last week as they thought the agency he was with were not paying him enough money.”

“He is loved by all his family, friends, cousins– we all miss him badly.

“He has left a hole that will be never be filled in my heart.”

Beds Police is still investigating the collision which occurred near Stanbridge.

PC Robert Hauxwell said: “This was a tragic incident in which a young man sadly lost his life. I would urge anyone who witnessed this incident to call police with information.”
