A 66-year-old man who tragically died following a collision on Manchester Road on Friday (5 July) has been named as Ian Hudson. 

At around 2.30pm on Friday it is reported that a black Lambretta scooter collided with a yellow Mercedes van at the junction with Rivelin Valley Road.

Ian, who was riding the scooter, was taken to hospital where he sadly died shortly after his arrival.  

Ian’s family have today paid tribute to him: “We are devastated at the loss of Ian. He was a friendly and outgoing man with many friends across Sheffield.

“He had ridden scooters and motorbikes for many years. In retirement he would regularly drive out to the Peak District with friends, with the Fairholmes Visitor Centre at Derwant Dam a frequent destination. He was also an active member of Sheffield Aces Scooter Club. 

“We are trying to come to terms with the fact that he is no longer with us and would encourage anyone with any information to please come forward.”

The family are being supported by specialist officers and they ask that their privacy is respected.

Officers echo Ian’s family’s request for anyone who saw what happened to get in touch, especially any motorists who were travelling along the A57 with dash cam footage.  

Please call 101 quoting incident number 477 of 5 July.
