The trailer was said to be “emitting smoke from its exhaust,” thereby impairing the vision of the deceased.

The statement read in part: “He died in the early hours of Sunday 30th September 2018 after his car crashed into a trailer with no backlights, emitting smoke from its exhaust thus reducing visibility.

“Until his death, he was a brother, friend and father.”
