The family of a man who died in a collision at Eggborough have paid tribute to him.
The collision occurred on Weeland Road between Eggborough and Knottingley just before 7pm on Saturday 17 June 2023.
Two small white vans travelling in opposite directions collided. Sadly, a passenger in one of them, 28-year-old Ryan Lee, died at the scene.
His family said: "Ryan’s tragic death has left a huge hole in our lives and our family.
"Ryan was a character, who lived life for today and to the full. Although this could cause worry for his family at times, Ryan brought a lot of fun and very many laughs. He had a heart of gold and would do anything for those he cared about.
"The many cards, flowers, well wishes and GoFundMe donations show how much Ryan was thought of, and how many people have been affected by his death. Ryan’s parents, John and Tracey, sister Sarah, niece Ivy-Rose, nana Jean, girlfriend Alana and the rest of his family are very grateful for every one of these. They really have helped during this devastating time. Ryan will always be loved and never forgotten."
