THE family of a man who died following a collision on the A17 at Swineshead Bridge have paid tribute to his kind and fun-loving nature.

Sean Andrew Flowers, 45, of New Balderton near Newark, died as the result of a four vehicle crash on the A17 at about 1.50pm on April 13.

The family released a statement which said: “Sean was a loving husband, devoted father of three and dearly loved son, brother and son-in-law.

“There are no words that can describe the great loss of Sean to all of his family, friends and colleagues.

“He was one of the kindest, most thoughtful, fun-loving and genuine people you could meet. His death will leave a huge hole in many lives.”

Mr Flowers had been driving a white Vauxhall Combo van. The other vehicles involved were a black Fiat Doblo, a heavy goods vehicle and a red Honda Civic.

The HGV driver, a 51-year-old Lincoln man, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has since been released on police bail until June 14.

The driver of the Doblo was a 25-year-old woman from Pontefract and the Civic driver was a 63- year-old Boston man.

They went to the Pilgrim Hospital but are not believed to have been seriously injured.
