A 18-year-old from Flimby has died after being hit by a car in Huddersfield.
Oliver Pryde, who was a first year maths student at Huddersfield University, was walking on a street in Kirkburton in the early hours of Monday July 12 when the incident occurred.
The former Netherhall School student had been out with friends to watch a match in the Euro 2020 competition and never made it home. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Two men in their 30s were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and a number of other offences following the collision.
Both have been bailed pending further enquiries.
Oliver’s family said in a statement: “We have all been left devastated by his tragic and untimely death, just five days before he was due to come home for the summer and 18 days before his 19th birthday.
“He went out to support his country in the Euros and he never made it home.
“Our lives will never be the same again.
“We will miss him ranting about football and his beloved Manchester United and his corny jokes that he found hilarious!
“Oliver went off to university to study maths; he hoped to become a maths teacher and teach secondary aged pupils.
“He really found himself at university and loved the life he had made with his new friends and flatmates, he spoke of them as if they were family.
“We were so proud of him for living his dream.”
He was the eldest of four children. He leaves behind two brothers, Reece, 12, Finlay, 11, and his little sister Libby, eight.
Oliver’s funeral will be held on Thursday August 5 at 11am in the sports hall of his previous secondary school, Netherhall School in Maryport, followed by burial in Flimby cemetery and then a wake in Flimby Club.
His family said all are welcome to join them to celebrate Oliver’s life.
They added: “Please feel free to wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing.”
