Tragic Dev Naran, 8, killed in M6 lorry smash as family pay tribute to Leicester City fan who dreamed of becoming a doctor

Dev Naran was pronounced dead at the scene following a collision between a lorry and a red Toyota Yaris car on Thursday night.

A man and a woman from the car were taken to hospital with serious injuries where they both remain in a stable condition.

Dev’s parents said in a statement: “He excelled at school and wanted to become a doctor.

"He looked after his brother Neel, who suffered brain damage at birth.

"He was a big sports fan and loved Leicester City. Dev was the most perfect son in every way."

Sergeant Alan Wood, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with Dev’s family who have asked for privacy at this very difficult time.

“I would urge anyone who witnessed the crash, in particular anyone with dash cam footage to get in touch."

A 62-year-old lorry driver from Hampshire was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and later released pending further investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting log 2160 of 31 May.
