The family of a man who died following a collision on the A428 at Croxton, Cambridgeshire, on Friday (17 November) have paid tribute to him. Jack Bayford, 20, of Elstow, near Bedford, was driving a silver Mazda MX5, which was in collision with a blue Scania HGV and a grey Nissan Qashqai at 6.40am.
Officers and paramedics attended, but Mr Bayford was pronounced dead at the scene.
Jack’s family today paid this tribute: “Our family is beyond heartbroken at the sudden loss of Jack.
“He was kind, loving, gentle, funny, geeky, and hardworking and had his whole life in front of him. To be taken too soon and in this way feels so cruel and we are still struggling to believe it is real.
“Jack was a much-loved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and boyfriend. He will forever be loved and remembered by his family and friends; especially his mum, dad, little sister, and his soulmate Mady.
“Rest in peace, our beautiful boy.”
The drivers of the other vehicles remained at the scene and an investigation continues.
Detective Constable Fay Millen, from the road policing unit, said: “Our thoughts are with Jack’s family and friends at this very difficult time.
“I am appealing to anyone who may have seen the collision, or any of the vehicles prior to it, to please get in touch.”
