A devastating car crash claimed the lives of a beloved Walsall chef and his two children, an inquest heard.

Alomgir Hussain, 36, was declared dead at the crash site following the collision between his car and a HGV in Hinckley, Leicestershire, reported MailOnline.

Paramedics also pronounced his nine-year-old son deceased shortly after the accident occurred on Watling Street in Burbage aroud 4.30pm on September 8.

Both West Midlands and East Midlands Ambulance Services, along with law enforcement and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, responded to the scene.

Medics transported Hussain’s four-year-old daughter to the hospital, but she tragically succumbed to her injuries later.

The only survivor from the family was his pregnant wife, who, despite being in critical condition, managed to survive the harrowing crash. However, she suffered miscarriage due to the collision.

He was working as a chef at the Everest Noodle House on Bradford Street, Walsall town centre.

A notice taped to the shutters read: “Our beloved brother Alomgir Hussain has sadly passed away and his two children, his nine-year-old son and four-year-old daughter, and his wife is in critical condition (ICU) due to a RTA road traffic accident on September 8.

“Please keep the family in your pious and humble duas. Subahan’ Allah. May Allah grant him and his family Jannatul Firdaus.”

The loss of Hussain, a respected chef from Walsall, and his two young children has left the community in profound sorrow.

Tributes and condolences have poured in, reflecting the impact of this tragic incident on the lives of those who knew and cherished the family.

The inquest, presided over by Coroner Prof. Catherine Mason, centered on Hussain’s death, omitting specific causes due to the brevity of the hearing.

The tragedy has sparked widespread support, leading to the creation of a fundraiser for Sadaqah Jariyah, a charitable initiative aimed at building water pumps and wells across the globe. The fundraiser has already raised more than £21,000 in contributions.

While investigations into the collision are ongoing, Prof. Mason adjourned the inquest to await further findings.

The incident has also sparked calls for safety measures along the A5, including the installation of speed cameras, prompting a petition and widespread concerns among locals.

Leicestershire Police have urged anyone with information or dashcam footage regarding the collision to come forward.
