    The family of a teenager who died following a road traffic collision in Dewsbury have paid tribute to a ‘kind and affectionate soul’.

    Rayhaan Hussain suffered fatal injuries following the collision on Station Road, close to the junction with Forge Lane, at about 7:30pm on Monday, 21 March.

    The 18-year-old pedestrian was taken to hospital but later sadly died of his injuries.

    In a statement issued today, Rayhaan’s family paid tribute to him: 
    “Rayhaan was a kind and affectionate soul. He was well-loved in the community, having been involved in Army Cadets, at boxing when he was young, and being a regular at the local mosque.

    “He was a major presence in his town and everyone who knew him always thought fondly of him, calling him a well-mannered man.

    “He was popular among friends and was extremely pleasant to be around, being able to make anyone smile and laugh.”

    Two vehicles, an Audi Q3 and a Nissan Qashqai, were recovered from the scene of the collision and enquiries are continuing.

    Police are appealing for information about the incident to contact them.

    Anyone who witnessed the incident or what happened prior to it is asked to contact the Major Collision Enquiry Team by calling 101
