Tributes to Silsden lorry driver killed in motorway collision
A driver killed when his lorry overturned has today been named as Trevor Kitchingman of Silsden.
The 42-year-old died when his HGV, which was carrying livestock, was in collison with another articulated lorry on the M6 about two miles beyond Southwaite services, in Cumbria, at 11.10pm on Friday.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
His wife, Kath, has paid tribute to her husband, saying: “Trevor was a very proud man with a massive heart. I loved him with all my heart and soul. I couldn’t love him more. I cannot believe he has been taken from this world.
“Trevor had a massive, expanding heart of gold. He would help anyone with anything and nothing was too much trouble to him. He loved the outdoor life and the fresh air of the country. He was a very much loved gentle giant.”
