Man Killed In Chelmsford Was 'Doting Granddad'
The family of a man killed in Chelmsford over the weekend, after he was hit by a car, have paid tribute to him.
Police are now able to name a man who died after being hit by a car in Osea Way, Chelmsford.
He is believed to be Allan Frampton, 60, of Hatfield Peverel. He died on Saturday, May 9, having been struck by a silver Mercedes.
A post-mortem examination has proved inconclusive and further test will be carried out to establish the cause of Mr Frampton’s death.
His family has released the following in tribute: "We can’t even begin to understand the events that took place on Saturday evening. A loving father, caring partner and doting granddad was taken from us far too early. With so much to look forward to his life was cruelly taken away. Please give us privacy at this time while we spend time as a family.”
The 63-year-old man from Chelmsford who was arrested shortly after the incident on suspicion of murder is currently receiving medical treatment.
Detectives continue to appeal for anyone with information to contact them on 101.
