Tributes have been paid to a university student who died in a road accident.

Police have named the victim as Ryan Joseph Rostron, 22, a student at Lancaster University.

His mother, Pamela Rostron said: “Ryan Joseph Rostron was a loving son who was never any trouble. He was a good boy.

“Ryan made me very proud in all he did.

“He played Rugby at Blackpool RFUC colts, he was very good at badminton and recently he was on the executive committee and played pool at Lancaster University.

“When Ryan went to university I was extremely proud, not only was he studying having dyslexia, but also worked at Argos in Cleveleys to top up his money.

“He bought his new car with his own money as it was his dream to own his own car.

“He was due to graduate on July 18 and had been making plans to celebrate, I am just so sad that he wont be there on that date.

“He was taken too soon, he wanted kids and marriage but none of that will ever happen.

“Ryan I love you so much.”

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after the collision on Garstang Road near St Michael’s at 6.40pm on Sunday night.

Sgt Lee Campbell from the Force Road Policing Unit said: “This is a tragic incident in which a young man has lost his life.

“I would appeal to anybody that witnessed the collision to come forward and contact Lancashire Police on 101.”

The road was closed for four hours for scene examination and recovery.
