Police have released the name of a 59-year-old man who died following a collision between a car and a van in Wolverhampton yesterday (29 December).
Balvinder Singh was taken to hospital following the incident on Cannock Road, near to the junction of Cross Street North, at around 8.20am, but later died from his injuries. He was driving the van at the time of the collision.
His family has paid tribute to the popular Wednesfield shopkeeper, saying; “He was the most loyal and hard-working family man, with three grandchildren and five grandchildren who were his everything. He was loved throughout the community.”
The family are currently being supported by specially trained officers and have asked that their privacy be respected.
The driver of the car involved in the collision was treated for minor injuries and continues to help officers with their enquiries. No arrests have been made.
Sergeant Alan Hands, from the regional collision investigation unit, said: “I would like anybody who witnessed this incident and hasn’t yet spoken to us to get in touch and help us find out exactly what happened.
“Medical staff did all they could but tragically Mr Singh could not be saved. I urge anyone who saw what happened to contact us on 101 quoting log number 423 of 29 December.”
