Men killed in car crash named

TRIBUTES have been paid to two men who died after their car hit a tree.
Jack Francis Christian, aged 22, and Lee James Perris, aged 23, died when the silver Volkswagen Polo overturned and crashed into a tree in Bury Road, Radcliffe, at 3.30am on Sunday.
Mr Perris, from Radcliffe, leaves his mother Tracey, sisters Maxine and Samantha, half-brothers Joshua and Reece, nephews Finley and Spencer Lee, and niece Gracie-Lou.
They said: “Lee loved football and was a massive Manchester United fan.
“He had a love of music and would often play his guitar.
“Lee was a sociable person who enjoyed socialising with his large circle of friends.
“He will be deeply missed.”
In a tribute to Mr Christian, from Bury, his family said: “Jack was a much-loved son, brother, grandson, nephew and friend to everyone who knew him.
“He was kind-hearted, loving and fun.
“He will leave a massive hole in our hearts and lives.”
The incident is being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
Police say an officer on routine patrol spotted the car with frost on its windows speeding along Bury Road. The officer had activated the vehicle’s emergency sirens to follow the car, but lost sight of it before the collision outside Newbank Garden Centre.
The officer has been suspended from driving while investigations are carried out.

A lot of people in this world judge but will not be judged so if you have anything to say on either side then think because you do not know the full story and proberly would not listen.Take a second.
But for the grace of god we all walk this earth.

Far too deep and religious for me that gkdabc!

You're right however, I guess it would help if we knew the full story before drawing conclusions.
We don't really know anything about what happened, like, was the car stolen for starters, if not, why weren't the windows defrosted before setting off, why were they speeding and not stopping, why did the police have to activate their warning lights if they were so far behind...which obviously spooked them.
So many un-answered questions.

Whatever the circumstace, it's still a tragic loss of two so young. RIP.
