Twenty-one-year-old Budhooram’s Facebook page says she was a student at Seneca College.

“Such a beautiful person you were Ravina Budhooram. You were the light in our family when you were born. Not one day you ever called me Uncle Gidz because we grew up as brother and sister,” Gideon Budhooram shared on Facebook.

“My news feeds are filled with beautiful pictures of you and remarkable memories. You left us all saddened kiddo … all you left us with is memories.

“So to my dearest niece Sonni, I love you with all my heart and hope that your soul rests in peace. When this song came out we sang it to you all the time. This one is all you … Love you ‘til I die,” Gideon wrote.

The crash also injured two men, age 22 and 24, both in life-threatening condition.

The five were in an Acura when it lost control just north of Sheppard, striking another Acura and then continued southwest, hitting a traffic light control and a fence. All five were thrown from the car. Police are investigating whether alcohol was a factor and if any of the five were wearing seatbelts
