The family of a 35-year-old man who died following a collision in the Moorlands have paid tribute to their ‘cherished son, brother, brother-in-law and doting uncle.’
Daniel Fallows was travelling in a Land Rover on Leek Road in Kingsley Moor at 12.45am on Sunday (September 19) when there was a single-vehicle collision.
Sadly, despite the best efforts of paramedics, Daniel, from Kingsley, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Daniel’s family have released a statement: “Our Daniel. Cherished son, brother, brother-in-law and doting uncle to three. At his happiest in a tractor, being filthy dirty with a smoke on and grafting his big gentle heart out.
“If you wanted anything doing ask Dan, he’d help out anyone. Innocent and harmless.
“That big, soft smile Dan. Oh, how we’ll miss it.
“Stolen from us far too young, this wasn’t your time Dan. Shine bright now, you’re with dad.”
Police officers from the Staffordshire and West Midlands Serious Collision Investigation Unit are appealing for witnesses after Sunday’s fatal incident in Kingsley Moor.

The spokesman added: “The driver, a 25-year-old man, was taken by ambulance to hospital with back injuries.
