TRIBUTES have been paid to the ‘most loving son’ who tragically died following a collision in Acocks Green.

Daniel Honnor was a passenger in a van which was in a crash with a Toyota Yaris in Fox Hollies Road at around 8.50am on July 29.

Emergency services arrived just before 9am and firefighters were able to release Daniel from the vehicle, however paramedics were unable to save his life.

The 20-year-old from Solihull was sadly confirmed dead at the scene.

In a tribute his mother Clare Honnor said: “Dan was the kindest, most loving son, brother and best friend. He was always there to make us laugh and brighten our days.

“He loved spending time with his family but his true passion was modifying his orange van and Land Rover with his best friend. Our world won’t be the same without him. My heart is broken but may he rest in peace.”

The police’s collision investigation unit are continuing their enquiries into the circumstances of the crash.

Anyone with information or who has dashcam footage from the area at the time should contact police vis live chat on the West Midlands Police website or by calling 101 and quote log 758 of July 29.
