The family of a man who died in a road traffic collision yesterday afternoon have paid tribute to him.
Andy Thomas was 54, and from Summerhill, Wrexham.
We were called at 2.43pm on Saturday afternoon (June 24) reporting a two vehicle RTC on the A494 at Glanrafon, Corwen involving a white Volvo XC60 and a Honda CBR motorbike.
Officers from the Roads Policing Unit attended alongside colleagues from WAST, Helimed and NWFRS, and the road was closed for some time.
Andy’s family have issued the following tribute: ‘Andy Thomas was a wonderful husband, son, father and brother who was tremendously loved by many, many people.
‘He was a huge motorbike enthusiast who lived his life to the full, making the most of every day possible.
‘He was an absolute ray of sunshine, who put others before himself at all times and devoted his life to his family.’
PC Dylan Smith from the force Roads Policing Unit said: ‘Our thoughts are with Andy’s family at this tragic time.
‘We are appealing for witnesses to assist our investigation. Anyone in the area who witnessed the incident or saw the vehicles prior to the RTC is encouraged to contact us.
