Tributes paid to teenager killed in car crash

Statement from the principal of King Edward VI Sheldon Heath Academy - where Ethan Sarkar attended.

It is with great sadness and regret that I am letting you know that Ethan Sarkar of 9E sadly passed away on Easter Saturday following a tragic car accident. His father and the other driver also passed away in the accident. His mother and sister are in hospital.

Ethan was an adorable, well-respected and popular young man. This is devastating news for us all. Our thoughts and prayers are with him, his family and friends. When we return after the Easter holidays we will come together as a community to share our sorrow and to reflect on Ethan's life and the memories he leaves with us.

– Mr John Allen
