The passenger of the car – a 20-year-old man – was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
Karl’s family said in a statement: “Karl was one of life’s truly lovely and genuine people. He was kind, gentle and loved by so many.
“He was a lifelong Oldham Athletic fan, and keen sports enthusiast, who loved to travel and led a full life surrounded by a large family and many friends.
“It’s beyond words how much we will miss Karl. Losing him is unbearable and has left a huge void in our lives.
“Our hearts are broken and our lives will never be the same but we had the absolute pleasure and honour of being part of his life and sharing so many happy times together. That is our only comfort at this dark time.”
