The 19-year-old driver who lost his life after his car collided with a wall has been named by Nottinghamshire Police.

Jamie Huscroft, of Keyworth, was driving his silver Vauxhall Corsa in the early hours of Monday when it came off Main Road, Plumtree.

He sadly died at the scene.

His family have said: “Jamie will always be a great son and brother but more so a friend to all.

“He will leave such a huge hole in so many people’s lives. Full of fun, laughter and such a character.”

They have asked for privacy at this difficult time and are being supported by specialist officers.

A 22-year-old passenger is in a stable condition after being taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Collision Investigator Sarah Butler, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This is a devastating incident and the family are still coming to terms with the shock and grief of losing their beloved Jamie.

“Our thoughts are also with the injured passenger and his family as we support them during this difficult time.

“We continue to investigate the full circumstances around what happened and our appeal for  information remains – if anyone saw a silver Vauxhall Corsa being driven in the Keyworth and Plumtree areas around the time of the collision, please get in touch.

“In particular, if anyone has dashcam footage that could be useful to us, please give us a call.”
