Tragic death of a deeply loved Middlesbrough teenager deemed an accident by a Teesside coroner

The tragic passing of a much-loved teenager who suffered blunt force trauma in a car crash was deemed to be an accident according to a Teesside coroner.

Mohammed Sayam Uddin, known as Sam, died at the scene of a crash on the A66 at Long Newton on August 16, 2019.

The former Acklam Grange pupil from Linthorpe was said to have had ‘the kindest and purest of hearts’.

The youngster was travelling as a passenger in a blue BMW when it collided with a white Audi A3 on the eastbound carriageway.

It was reported the driver had lost control of the vehicle causing the car to collide with concrete before crashing into another car. Sayaf  Uddin, appeared in court accused of causing the death of the teenage passenger.

He was set to face trial over allegations of driving under the influence of cannabis, but criminal charges were dropped in October 2021.

Assistant coroner Karen Welsh said at Teesside coroners court there were several possibilities as to why the driver lost control.

A post-mortem was carried out shortly after recording the cause of death as blunt force trauma.

In August 2019, Sam’s sister Halima, one of five siblings, shared words written by the family: “Nothing we possibly say could ever do our angel any justice, but all we can do is try.

“On Friday, August 16, our entire world came apart in an instant – our hearts broke beyond repair.

“Our beautiful angel baby, Sam was taken from us. He had just turned 17. He was our heart and soul – our entire world.

“Sam was truly the best of us all. He wasn’t here for a very long time but my god this boy left his mark on the world.”

The coroner offered her sympathies to the family recording the death as an accident.

Sam was remarked upon as a one in a million teenager.
