The family of 19 year old Toby Woolford from Horsham, who sadly died when his Vauxhall Corsa collided with an HGV lorry on the A27, Arundel on Thursday (August 25) have issued the following tribute.

"We hope that everyone will respect our need for privacy during this very difficult time. We have a close group of very supportive friends and family that will help us through this tragic period in our lives.

"Toby was much loved by everyone that knew him. He was a loving son, brother, boyfriend and a loyal friend. He will be missed more than words can say. He will always be remembered for his smile, his kindness and above all his ability to make you laugh.

"Toby had just started a new chapter in his life. He had just started a new apprenticeship and was excited by the new challenges that lay ahead of him.

"He will leave us with many wonderful memories and filled our lives with laughter and joy. His tragic passing will leave an enormous hole in our hearts but also with a smile knowing that Toby loved life and lived it to the full."

Emergency services were called to the A27 at Arundel at 7.10am on Thursday 25 August, after a car and a HGV lorry had collided on the stretch between Arundel railway station and Crossbush. It closed the road in both directions for over 6 hours.
