A teenager who died in a crash in Hemel Hempstead has been described as a "role model" by his family in a touching tribute.

Arman Iqbal died just after 5.30pm on Monday, August 28, when the Audi he was travelling in collided with the central reservation on the A414 between Hemel Hempstead and Park Street.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The family of the 19-year-old have paid tribute to him, describing him as an "amazing son", and "a role model to his younger siblings".

"Arman was only 19-years old when he passed away. He was a fun and happy soul who left a lasting impression to everyone he crossed paths with," the family said.

"Arman was an amazing son who prioritised his family, looked after his parents and was a role model to his younger siblings and those around him.

"He cared for his younger siblings like no other and will be forever remembered and missed by them. Arman was known to keep Islam close to his heart and we are very proud of his passion for his religion. He was quick to right a wrong and would lend a helpful hand to anyone who needed it.

"Our son was a caring, smart and compassionate man and a positive influence on the lives of his family, friends, and everyone in the community. Arman's death has impacted a lot of people throughout his short time with us.

"Although he is gone, his memory will live in our hearts eternally and he will be remembered by all the good deeds he did. Life will never be the same without him, but we are grateful for every minute we were given.

"You will always be missed, remembered, and loved. Verily we belong to Allah, and verily to him do we return."

Detective Sergeant Ben Heath, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Serious Collisions Unit, added: "Our thoughts remain with the family of Arman at this sad time.
