The family of a man who died in a collision on the A5, near Mile Oak, recently, have paid tribute to him.
Officers were called to the northbound slip road of the A5 and the A453 at around 5.20pm on Tuesday (24 May) following reports of a multiple-vehicle collision.
On arrival, a black VW Up, a white Scania Arctic, a white Ford Fiesta and other vehicles were found to be in collision.
Colleagues from Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service and paramedics attended the scene alongside officers and two air ambulances.
Sadly, David May, aged 76, from Sutton Coldfield, who was the driver of the Volkswagen, was pronounced dead by paramedics a short time later.
The occupants of the Fiesta, who were assessed at the scene, were transported to hospital but have since been discharged.
In a statement, Mr May’s family said: “David was an amazing husband and father.
“He was a great family man who always made time for people and was liked by all.
“He will be missed.”
Anyone who witnessed the collision or who may have relevant dashcam footage of the area at the time, should contact us on Facebook, Twitter or call 101, quoting incident number 520 of 24 May.
