A fundraising page has been launched for two men from Acton who were killed and one man from Maida Vale who was left fighting for his life after a car crash in Essex .
On Saturday (November 12) passengers Farhad-Zubair Maqbool and Yahya Sharif, both 25 and from Acton, died at the scene after a BMW came off at the A12 near Ingatestone and hit a tree, reports Essex Live .
The driver, a 26-year-old from Maida Vale named by friends as "Yousief", survived the collision but is in a critical condition at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.
A fundraising page has been launched by Abdifatah Abdi, which has so far raised £8,695 towards its goal of £15,000.
On the page, a statement read: "As most of you may already know, three of our friends were driving to Essex when their car lost control and collided with a tree.
"Farhad and Yayha were pronounced dead at the scene, while Yousief underwent eight hours of surgery and is currently in critical condition.
"They were driving to drop Yayha at his university and there was no other car involved.
"All three were good natured people, and if you know any of them, you can certainly attest to this.
"They had ambitions for the future, and now the future on this Earth is gone - for at least two of them.
"While this is so hard to accept, we must channel our feelings at this time to help support their families who we class as our own.
"Money raised will be shared evenly between their three families for use in these difficult times.
"The money raised can be used to cover things like funeral arrangements, charity in their name for their memory and good deeds to live on.
"Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajiun. (To Allah we belong and to Him we return.)"
One of two Acton men killed in the crash, student Yahya Sharif, has been described as "bright, clever and keen to learn" .
It has since been confirmed that Mr Sharif was a student at Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford, studying a BSc in civil engineering since 2014.
A spokesman at the university told Essex Live : "As a student he was a delight to teach, bright, clever and keen to learn. But he was also much more than that.
"He brought his big personality and great sense of humour to the classroom.
"He was friendly, kind and enthusiastic, always willing to help fellow students, and had made many friends at Anglia Ruskin.
"Yahya will be very much missed by staff and students alike. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time."
