Emo­tional trib­utes to vic­tim

Herald Express - - News -

EMO­TIONAL trib­utes have been left at the scene of a crash in Torquay in which a young Ro­ma­nian man was killed.

An­drei Za­haria, who was 23, was a front-seat pas­sen­ger in a car which left the road and hit a tree just off the seafront around 4am on Oc­to­ber 11.

Rath­more Road was sealed off be­hind Torquay Re­cre­ation Ground as emer­gency ser­vices dealt with the after­math of the crash. The driver of the car was treated for mi­nor in­juries and an­other pas­sen­ger trav­el­ling in the back of the car was taken to Der­ri­ford Hospi­tal in Ply­mouth with a se­ri­ous leg in­jury.

He has since been re­leased. A 19-year-old man was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of caus­ing death by danger­ous driv­ing and was later re­leased un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion pend­ing fur­ther in­quiries.

The trib­utes to Mr Za­haria in­clude flow­ers, can­dles and pho­tographs. Above the pho­tographs is a card read­ing: “Rest in Peace Beau­ti­ful Soul! You will al­ways be re­mem­bered no mat­ter what. Your pres­ence, love and kind­ness will be for­ever with us.”

An­other card reads: “Odi­h­neasca-se în pace”.

The phrase is Ro­ma­nian for Rest in Peace.
