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.

A spokesman for the force said on Sunday: “Police were called to the A52 Leek Road near to Blakely Farm Kennels at 12.45am, following a single-vehicle collision involving a grey Land Rover.
“A passenger in the car,
(now named as Daniel Fallows) aged 35, suffered serious injuries and, despite the efforts of medical staff, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

His family are being supported by specially-trained officers at this time.”

The spokesman added: “The driver, a 25-year-old man, was taken by ambulance to hospital with back injuries.
“A further passenger, a 20-year-old man, was taken by ambulance to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham with back injuries.”

They added: “We would remind people not to speculate as to the cause of the collision or comment inappropriately as this is a live on-going police investigation.”

A police spokesman gave an update on the two men in their twenties yesterday (Tuesday, September 21): “Both men continue to receive treatment in hospital.”

A spokesman for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said of the incident: “We were called at 00.37am to Leek Road, Kingsley Moor and sent four ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance crew responded in a rapid response car.

On arrival, we discovered three patients, all men.

The first, was found in a critical condition, he received advanced life support from staff on scene but unfortunately, despite the best efforts of staff, nothing more could be done to save him and he was confirmed deceased at the scene.

The second patient was assessed and had sustained non-life threatening injuries, he received treatment on scene and was conveyed to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further assessment.

The third man was assessed at the scene and had sustained injuries not considered to be life threatening, he was conveyed to Queens Medical Centre Nottingham for further assessment.”

Any witnesses who may have seen the vehicle before the collision or anyone with relevant dashcam footage is urged to message Staffordshire Police on Facebook or Twitter quoting incident number 41 of September 19 or call 101. Alternatively, email the team direct at ciu@staffordshire.pnn.police.uk.
