A man who died in a crash on the North York Moors was today described as ‘the most loveable person ever’ by his family.
His loved ones paid the moving tribute to Paul Brand, 49, as police continue their investigation into the incident.
Mr Brand died following a collision between a grey Hyundai Kona SUV and a black Hyundai i40 on the A171 near Scaling Dam.
It happened at around 7pm on Sunday, 8 October.
In a statement issued via North Yorkshire Police, the family of Mr Brand, from Loftus, near Saltburn, said: “Our Dad was the most caring, loveable person ever.
“He would do anything for anyone and no problem was too big for him to solve!
“He has been taken away from us in the worst possible way and nothing will ever fill this void.
“We love you dad forever.”
After the crash, paramedics treated both drivers at the scene. Sadly, Paul, who was driving the Kona, was later pronounced dead.
The man who was driving the i40 was taken to hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening. They remain in a stable condition.
The road was closed for a number of hours to allow emergency services to attend the incident and investigate the collision.
Anyone who witnessed the collision, saw either vehicle in the moments leading up to it, or has dashcam footage of either, is urged to make contact with North Yorkshire Police if they have not already done so.
