“Sam had an infectious grin and was a lovely lad. We are all deeply saddened by his sudden death.

“If there is anything positive to say at this sad time, it is that he squeezed every minute out of his life and lived it to the full.

“He had many friends at Christchurch Group so there is a lot of sadness and upset amongst the team.

“Arrangements have been made to send our thoughts and condolences to his family.”

The accident happened on the A420 near Swindon at 11.15pm on Sunday when the blue Citroen Saxo the friends were travelling in collided with a black Mercedes heading in the opposite direction.

A man, a woman and a three-year-old boy in the Mercedes, were seriously injured.

Anyone with any information about the collision can contact Det Sgt Collier via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101 quoting URN 1546 22/5.
