The life of Plymouth University students Colin Williams and Jonathan Poon were forever changed on the final day of the 2012 cricket tournament when they were killed by a speeding bus in Bristol.
Now they will never be the same again.
Poon died in hospital on Sunday, just weeks before his 21st birthday, while Williams was found unresponsive at his house in Plymouth on Monday morning.
Their parents and a close friend were both charged with culpable homicide and the death of a person under 18 is still under investigation.
The pair died in Bristol on December 13, 2012 after a bus carrying them and a friend collided with a lorry.
The bus had been travelling from Plymouth to the Port of Bristol.
Both students were from Bristol University.
Bristol Police have confirmed that both of them died as a result of their injuries, but it is not clear how.
It is not known whether the driver of the lorry was a passenger.
Pronk was known to police for theft and robbery offences and was known by his friends to have been in a relationship with a woman who he was in a romantic relationship with, a friend told the Bristol Post.
A man who was with him on the day of their death was arrested on suspicion of stealing money from a man.
The driver of a lorries was not injured.
Police have not confirmed what led up to the collision.
What does Plymouth University say about the collision?
The university has offered its condolences to the families and friends of both men, saying it is “very sad news”.
It says the collision happened as they were leaving their home in the city’s central business district, and that it is extremely difficult to understand the circumstances surrounding the collision and the driver’s actions.
It says it is assisting police with their inquiries and that Plymouth is co-operating fully with their investigation.
Ponsor University says it “reassures students and their families that safety and security is a priority at the university and we are supporting them as they seek any answers.”
A university spokesperson said: “Ponsor will work with the police to understand what happened.
We want to make sure that no one has to go through what we have.”
Who are the victims?
Students Poon and Williams died on the same day that the world’s biggest cricket tournament was due to be held in Bristol, with hundreds of thousands of spectators expected in Bristol’s CBD.
The students were part of the England and Wales team that toured the UK and the US.
Their deaths are yet another reminder of the dangers of travelling by bus, particularly in the early hours of a tournament, which can often take place in places where people are not at home.
The day before, the tournament was held at the University of Plymouth, in a place called The Village, in the south-west of the city.
This meant that Poon, who had been planning to take his English exams, would not be able to attend the event in Plymouth.
Williams, a student at Plymouth, died two days later in hospital.
Both had been working on a master’s degree in business management at Plymouth University.
