A 21-year-old man who died in a car accident in the early hours of the morning was one of four passengers in the vehicle, police have revealed.
Derbyshire police said a single BMW was involved in the incident at 4.25am on Saturday, January 27, in Aston Lane, Sudbury, with the car containing five people in total.
The man, who has not yet been named by police but has been named locally as Josh, was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has now been released under police investigation.
A formal identification of the man is not due to take place until later this week after a post-mortem is carried out. Flowers with a bottle of Corona and Stella Artois cans have been left at scene in memory of him.
Tributes left at the scene read: "RIP Little Josh. Gone far too soon. What a legend. Will miss you so much. Will never forget you."
Another said: "RIP Josh. You'll be sadly missed mate. Rest easy."
One simply reads: "RIP son."
One tribute said: "Josh. You're the most amazing lad I've ever met. From day one you've been my friend. Happy, smiley face who had everyone laughing. You are one in a million. Devastated doesn't come close. A good friend, legend and kindest person in the world. I love and miss you."
