Family pay moving tribute to young vehicle accident victim

The family of a teenager killed in a tragic vehicle accident have paid a moving tribute to the multi-talented 18-year-old.

Justyn Barker, from Glemsford in Suffolk, died when his red Hyundai Coupe crashed into a telegraph pole on a notorious accident blackspot on the A1092. Emergency services rushed to the scene but the youngster's personal injuries were too severe and paramedics could do nothing to help.

The tragic road accident happened the day before his parents' silver wedding anniversary and a big family party was planned for the next day.

His distraught family told reporters, "Anyone who met him warmed to him instantly. His friends ranged from schoolchildren to the elderly.

"So many people have contacted us since he died - we are only now beginning to realise just how much he did for other people.

"We have been so proud to have him as our son."

They also paid tribute to his fantastic nature, saying, "Justyn lived life to the full, providing laughter every day to everyone around him.

"Never a day went by without him hugging us and telling us he loved us. He was very chilled, laid-back and confident without being cheeky."

Police have appealed for witnesses to the vehicle accident which happened at around 8.30pm on Friday 28th April, and are asking anyone with information to get in touch.
