A young man has been critically injured in a car crash which also claimed his girlfriend's life.

Kamil Rozynek, a Warsaw native who lives in Belfast, is fighting for his life following the south Belfast crash in which his girlfriend of nearly three years, Kinga Pelc, was killed.

The Renault car the 21-year-old woman was travelling in was involved in a collision with a four-wheel drive on the Annadale Embankment at about 3pm on Friday.

The young woman, who is from Szczecin in Poland, died on Saturday as a result of her injuries.

She was the 24th person to die on Northern Ireland's roads this year.

Last night a spokeswoman for the Royal Victoria Hospital - where Kamil is being treated - said he remained in a critical condition.

Two other people were taken to hospital for treatment to their injuries after the crash and police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Yesterday, Kamil's co-workers at Four Star Pizza on the Beersbridge Road said that they wished him "all the best".

Social media has shown the high regard the couple enjoyed from friends made in Northern Ireland and from their native country.

Dominika Rozynek wrote: "Brother you have to fight, you have to be strong. We are with you remember! We Love You we pray for you!"

Piotr Niescier posted: "Kamil keep up the fight."

Facebook tributes have also been posted about the loss of Kinga, including one from her sister Pamela Anna Pelc who has a black memorial ribbon as her profile picture, alongside another of Kinga with Kamil.

She wrote: "Kingusia, my little angel."

Malgorzata Pieczynska-Seliga wrote: "I can't believe it."

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident. Constable David Saunderson said: "I would appeal to anyone who witnessed this road traffic collision or saw either car in the area at the time of the incident to contact the Collision Investigation Unit."
