Family Pays Tribute To Crash Victim
The family of a man who died in a road traffic collision on the A2 has paid tribute to him.
Keith Hall, aged 44, from Whitfield died following the collision on the A2 between Dover and Canterbury on Wednesday, 17 April 2013.
Mr Hall's wife, Paula said: "Keith was a good husband to me and a special Dad to our two much loved children that he adored. He will be greatly missed by us, his family and his friends. He touched the lives of so many people and will hopefully be
remembered as a kind, generous, football mad man, who would do anything for you. "
It is believed that Mr Hall's MGB sports car had broken down at the side of the London-bound carriageway between Dover and Canterbury when a Scania tipper lorry was in collision with it.
Mr Hall was declared dead at the scene. The driver of the lorry was shocked but not injured.
Police are continuing to appeal for information about the collision which happened at 3.20pm near Patrixbourne. The road had to be closed until 7.50pm to allow emergency services to deal with the collision and for the vehicles to be removed.
