Family pay tribute to ‘much loved’ great grandad following fatal road collision

The family of Joe Shaw have paid tribute to him, following a fatal road collision that occurred in Atherton.

A car was travelling along Flapper Fold Lane at midday last Friday, when it collided with a mobility scooter being driven by Joe, as it crossed the carriageway.

This resulted in the 88-year-old rider becoming unseated and knocked to ground. He passed away in hospital that evening.

A 30-year-old woman was initially arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing serious injury by careless driving and driving a vehicle whilst under the influence of a specified drug following a positive roadside test. She has since been bailed pending further enquiries.

Tribute

Joe’s family said: “Our father Joe Shaw was injured in the collision and was taken to hospital where he sadly died surrounded by his family.

“Joe was a much-loved father, grandfather and great-grandfather and he was well known in the local community.  Joe enjoyed watching football, playing dominoes and he always had a smile on his face.

“Joe died surrounded by his loved ones and will be sadly missed. He is now back with his beloved Rita.”
