Tribute to Cumbria collision death father Levent Sadik

The family of a father-of-three who died in a head-on collision on a Cumbrian road has paid tribute to him.

Levent Sadik, 30, from Penrith, died in the collision between a van and a car on the A686, at Edenhall, on 25 August.

His family described him as a "wonderful loving" father to his three children and said he would be sorely missed by family and friends.

Cumbria Police is appealing for any witnesses to contact them.

In a statement the family said: "It is with great sadness that Levent has been so tragically taken from us.

"Levent was a wonderful loving father to his three children.

"He will be sorely missed by his many friends and close family in particular his mum, brother, grandmother, uncle, loving partner Julie and his friends."

The 75-year-old driver of the car was treated in the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.

The road was closed for about six hours to allow emergency services to deal with the incident.
