A 22-YEAR-OLD driver who died after his black BMW car crashed down an embankment in Riding Court Road, Datchet – rolling over and trapping two men inside– has been named.

The accident happened at about 4.30am on Monday at the entrance to the Riding Court business centre a few yards past Datchet Cricket Club.

Firefighters from Slough and Langley worked for an hour to free Jaskaran Singh Sandhu and his passenger.

South Central Ambulance sent a rapid response vehicle, two ambulances, paramedic team leader, silver officer and a doctor.

Tragically, it was too late to help Mr Sandhu, who was found dead at the scene. The passenger, another 22-year-old man sustained serious head injuries and was taken to the major trauma centre at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington where he remains in a serious, but stable condition.

The site where the accident happened was covered in flowers and tributes this week – with a bouquet spelling out Jaz, the name by which Mr Sandhu was affectionately known.

Mr Sandhu’s father, Satinder Singh Sandhu, is president of the Slough Kabaddi Club. Kabaddi is a traditional Punjabi sport and Jaskaran was a keen player.

A Kabaddi tournament that was due to be held in Kedermister Park in Slough on Sunday has been cancelled.

Slough’s MP Tan Dhesi knows the family and posted the following statement on the Kabaddi Club facebook page – “ A major loss for his family. Someone who had a lot to offer the community, having merely entered his twenties. Rest in peace.” Mr Dhesi will be attending the funeral.

Jaskaran is an ex-pupil at Langley Grammar School. A spokesman for the school’s leadership team said: “We are deeply saddened to hear of Jaskaran’s sudden death. Our thoughts are with his family and friends, particularly his younger brothers Karanveer and Daranveer, both of whom were students at this school.”
