St Michael crash - victim named as Lancaster University student Ryan Rostron

Following the fatal road traffic collision that took place in St Michael’s last night (see earlier story), the victim can now be named as 22 year-old Lancaster University Ryan Rostron, from Blackpool.

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after Ryan died in a road traffic collision in St Michaels. The collision took place around 6.40pm when Ryan was driving his Renault Clio along Garstang Road towards the A6. He has lost control on a right hand bend and collided with a tree.

Ryan, who was the single occupant, received injuries that proved fatal at the scene.

“Ryan was a loving son who was never any trouble," says his mother, Pamela, in a statement. "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," she added. "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.

“He was due to graduate on the 18th July 2013 and had been making plans to celebrate, I am just so sad that he won't be there on that date.

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