Breaking Hertfordshire Stevenage

The wife of a man who died following a road traffic collision in #Stevenage has paid tribute to him

At around 11pm on Friday 24 September, an e-scooter rider was seriously injured when he came off the vehicle at the Broadwater Crescent junction with Woodland Way.
The East of England Ambulance Service attended and took the man, Stewart Macgregor, aged 53, to hospital after he suffered a life-threatening head injury. He sadly died of his injuries in hospital two days later.
Paying tribute to her husband, Stewart’s wife Nicky, said: “I, our children and family are totally devastated that Stewart is no longer with us.
“He was a loving husband, son, brother, dad, uncle and friend, our lives will never be the same without him. He was such a caring loving person.
“I am totally devastated that I won’t ever see him again, he had only popped out to see if the petrol garage had fuel.
“I would like to make others aware that these e-scooters can be so dangerous.
“When Stew first got this scooter I didn’t really think much about it, nor did I ever think something like this would happen.
“Please, if you own one, wear a helmet, Stew used to wear his helmet, but on this particular night he went out without one.
“I hope no other family has to go through what we are all going through, please wear a helmet when necessary on a bicycle or scooter.”
Sergeant Sam Cordingley, of the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, added: “Our thoughts remain with Stewart’s family at this difficult time. We would politely request that their privacy is respected.
“We continue to investigate the incident and would appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision, or the moments prior to it, who has not already come forward, to contact us.
“If you have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle and were travelling in the area at the time of the collision, please review your footage to see if you have captured anything of note.”
No other vehicle was believed to have been involved in the incident.
