Two dead in separate road traffic accidents in WalesSeptember 2, 2010
Two men died in separate road traffic accidents in Wales last weekend. Now their families are paying tribute to them.
84-year-old Donald Evans was crossing a road in Penarth when he was struck by a black Vauxhall Corsa coming down the street. Mr Evans was rushed to University Hospital of Wales. He was grandfather to 14 and father of six, and also has 12 great-grandchildren.
Stephen Hoare, 44, was riding his motorcycle when he was involved in a collision at traffic lights in Llantwit Major. He sadly suffered fatal injuries in the crash, when a black Ford Fiesta turned right into a side road and struck him, in the early evening of Saturday.
The driver who collided with Mr Evans has been released on bail. The great-grandfather was described as a lively member of the community in Penarth, and would be “sadly missed,” (BBC News, 2009).
Mr Hoare was a mechanic, and will be missed by his girlfriend and 15-year-old son.
