Tributes To M20 Crash Victim

A man who died in a car crash on Boxing Day was due to attend his only daughter’s wedding the next day.

Paul Clark, 51, from Sidcup, was killed at the scene when his silver Vauxhall Vectra was involved in a single-vehicle crash between junctions 2 and 1 on the London-bound carriageway of the M20 just before 8pm on Boxing Day.

Later his widow, Tracie Clark, issued the following statement on behalf of his family:

"Boxing Day was the day before Paul's only daughter's wedding, which was to be held at Chilston Park Hotel in Lenham, Maidstone.

“Everyone who ever met Paul was touched by his infectious sense of humour and his immense love for all his family and special friends.”
Mrs Clark added: “Life will never be the same again.”
Police initially appealed for a key witness who made the 999 call to come forward. After hearing this appeal on the radio, he made contact with police. Anyone else who may hold information can contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 01622 798538.
