Heartbreaking tributes paid to dad-of-two, 27, killed in lorry crash horror

A young dad-of-two from north Wales has been killed in a fatal car crash with a lorry in Scotland earlier this week.

Thomas Hobson, 27, was travelling along the A9 Inverness to Scrabster Trunk Road at Milnafua when his blue Vauxhall Astra was in collision with a HGV at around 9.10pm on Monday, January 4.

Hobson is understood to be from the Llandudno Junction area in Conwy, north Wales.

The father was pronounced dead at the scene following the horror lorry crash,and police have stated that the lorry driver has escaped uninjured following the incident.

The road was closed for around seven hours for a full collision investigation to take place, reports the Daily Record.

Devastated friends have since rallied around his heartbroken family, with a fundraiser launched to support his wife, Lucy, and their two children, Harper, five, and Ralphie, three.

Since launching the page on Saturday, more than £21,000 has been raised for Mr Hobson's family.

A statement on the GoFundMe page, says: “Tom was a much-loved character, loved not just by his family, but by all his multinational colleagues.

“He was always full of life and had a constant beaming smile which was infectious to his colleagues, this positive attitude was always on show despite working at times for weeks on end offshore in arduous conditions such as the North Sea.”
