The family of a 23-year-old man, who died following a collision in Buckden, have said he was a “much loved son” and that his death had left friends and family “devastated”.

Jamie Pegram, 23, of School Lane, Buckden, was driving a blue Vauxhall Corsa along Mill Road at about 12.40am on Saturday when he was involved in a collision with a grey Range Rover Sport.

Police and ambulance services attended and Jamie was pronounced dead at the scene.

A tribute released by his family said: "Jamie was a very much loved son to Melvyn and Caryl, brother to Marty and a much loved grandson. Jamie lived local in the village for 23 years going to the local schools. He went to university and got a first class honours degree in film studies and English. Jamie was working in the local Cineworld gaining experience as he wanted to work in media/film making.

"He was unique and individual and was writing a horror movie he was hoping to get filmed later in life. He had a love for music, playing the sax and the keyboard. He was an active member of the Rising Phoenix paranormal society. He was a very sensitive loving son, thinking of his family all the time. He had many friends who are devastated at his passing."

The driver of the Range Rover, a woman in her 30s, was taken to hospital with serious, but not life-threatening injuries. Four young passengers travelling in the Range Rover were also taken to hospital for treatment."
