The family of Derek and Ethan Sarkar, who were killed in a crash in East Cowick, East Yorkshire say their loss is beyond belief.

14 year old Ethan and his dad Derek, 46, died when their car collided head on with another. Mr Sarkar's wife, Karen, 43, and their nine year old daughter Abbie were airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary.

The driver of the other car also died.

Today we are saddened and distraught with the loss of two members of our family, Derek and Ethan. We are still shocked by the nature of the incident and all our prayers and efforts are currently directed to supporting his wife and daughter make a full and speedy recovery and helping them cope with their loss.

Derek was a wonderful father, husband and a lively and central part of our family. Ethan was at the heart of all our lives, their loss to us is beyond belief.

We thank all Derek and Ethan’s friends for their kind words, thoughts and support, they mean a lot to us and we know they will be missed by all of you.

We also understand that there is a third victim in this tragic accident and our hearts and thoughts go out to her family and friends.
