Saab Azraq left the scene but a 47-year-old man was arrested.

Mohammed, 40, was an IT specialist at a special needs school. His wife would have turned forty on Friday.

They left five girls – Alia, 17, Mimi, 16, Maria, 13, Aisha, 11 and Zara, five.

The four older sisters were told of the tragedy in Acox Green, Birmingham, at about 5.45pm on Saturday. But the autistic Zara is still unaware.

Shekel’s sister, Anisha, traveled from Glasgow to be at the family home in Solihull.

She told The Sun, “We were talking every day. She wasn’t just my sister, she was my best friend.

“Our parents are here – they are in a daze. We are still deciding who will take care of the children.”

She described Muhammad as “one of life’s best people.”

A local resident said: “I have lost count of the accidents I have seen here. It is a dangerous road.”

One of the couple’s neighbors added, “Mo was a beautiful man.”

Locals told how they rushed to help the couple while they were dying on the road.

My dad of four, Seif Minhas, 47, said: “We heard a bang from the road and ran away.

“There were two people lying on the ground on the other side of the road, bleeding profusely.

“The bike was in front of them facing the road.

“The car wasn’t there, so you must have gotten off of it.

“A lot of people were already with them and we checked their pulse but there was nothing.”

“This road is horrible, there have been five accidents since Christmas, which is ridiculous, and the council has to do something,” said the two children’s grandfather Andrew Gott, 75.

DS Paul Hughes of West Midlands Police appealed for witnesses, adding: “Our thoughts are with family members and friends of the victims at this difficult time.”

A 47-year-old man, who was arrested near the scene of the accident on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, has been released under investigation while investigations continue.
