THE WIFE of a motorcyclist who died after a head-on crash in Wychbold on Saturday (October 19) has described him as a very thoughtful person who was always willing to help people.
Nigel Tillett, who was riding a beige Honda CB 500, was involved in the collision with a silver Jaguar X-type at around 8.05am on the A38, near the junctions of Church Lane and Mill Lane and the Murco petrol station.
The 46-year-old father-of-one, of Burrish Street, Droitwich, suffered a cardiac arrest and was given CPR at the scene before being taken to Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital. He had sustained serious multiple injuries and died in hospital on Saturday evening.
Mr Tillett, a mental health support worker in Worcester, was on his way home to look after his 15-month-old son Alexander so his wife Alison could go to work.
Mrs Tillett said: “Nigel was a caring dad.
"He was fantastic with our son.
"We are grateful that Alexander is too young to grieve for his father.
“Nigel was very good at his job, and was a very thoughtful person, who was always willing to help people, not in the way that was easiest but in the way that would benefit them most in the long term.
“He knew a lot of different people, and loved motorbikes, mountain bikes and walking, especially in Wales, where he grew up.”
She added friends were going to be asked to contribute their memories of Mr Tillett to a scrap book which Alexander could have when he was older.
West Mercia Police have already spoken to some witnesses in a bid to piece together what happened.
But they want anyone who did see the incident or who saw either vehicle in the moments leading up to the crash to call Sgt Steve Hastie on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
The Jaguar driver, a 69-year-old man from Wychbold, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving.
He has been released on police bail until December 9, pending further inquiries.
