Anguish of Polish horror crash father

By David Raleigh

A man whose Irish wife and daughter were killed in a horrific collision in Poland has paid tribute to "the two most important girls" in his life.

Danish helicopter pilot Soren Buchtrup said he had "lost everything" after his wife Yvonne (30) and daughter Ella (2) were "abruptly and brutally taken away". Yvonne is a daughter of Co Limerick horse trainer John Long and his wife Angela. The devastated parents were last night liaising with the Department of Foreign Affairs to make funeral arrangements. It's understood Mr Buchtrup, his wife and two children, including their six-month-old son Noah, were sitting in their parked car when another vehicle collided with them. Yvonne and Ella were killed and Soran and Noah were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
