The three men who died when the sports car they were travelling in burst into flames after colliding with a lorry on the North Circular have been named by police.

Jawad Qureshi, 28, from Harrow, was driving the Subaru Impreza involved in the fatal crash on the A406 in the early hours of Monday, December 23.

A spokesman for the Met said his passengers have been identified as Toheed Robani, aged 34, from Willesden, and 28-year-old Haider Qureshi, 28 of Colindale.

Officers were called to the incident near to the junction of the North Circular/Bowes Road with Natal Road near Arnos Grove at around 12.25am.

The spokesman said reports suggest the Subaru was travelling westbound and hit the central reservation before colliding with a lorry coming the opposite way before catching fire.

Post mortems on the three men took place at Haringey Mortuary, and the cause of death for Jawad Qureshi was given as multiple injuries.

Police said Toheed Robani died from head injuries while Haider Qureshi’s cause of death was also given as multiple injuries.

The driver of the lorry suffered minor injuries.

A Vauxhall Astra was also involved in the collision, with its two male occupants taken to hospital suffering from minor injuries.

Both were discharged and the arrested by police investigating the triple death on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, but have since been bailed, the spokesman confirmed.

Officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit at Chadwell Heath Traffic Garage are still investigating the incident, and anyone with any information is asked to call the witness line on 020 8597 4874.
