Police name young man killed in Dudley collision

06/06/2014

Police have named the young man who died in a collision in Dudley on Tuesday evening (3 June).

Timothy Pearson, aged 23, from Quarry Bank, was the passenger in a Nissan Skyline, which hit a garden wall in St Peter’s Road just before 9.30pm.

Tim suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene, while the 28-year-old driver was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Tim’s family spoke of the heartache of their loss: "What can we say about Tim? He was cheeky, sarcastic, loyal, always smiling, always singing and dancing, always had a smile on his face no matter what.

"He was the best son, brother, uncle, grandson, cousin and friend anyone could ask for. The 23 years and ten and a half months he was with us were the best of our lives.

"The pain we are feeling now will never leave us nor our memories of Tim. He was full of energy, he couldn’t keep still but we loved every annoying thing about him."

PC Paul Cope from the Collision Investigation Unit continues to appeal for witnesses. He said: "We are trying to establish the circumstances of the collision and would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened.

"Our thoughts and sympathies remain with Tim’s family at this difficult time."

Collision investigators can be contacted on 101.
