Leyland family's tribute to bike death grandad
1:50pm Wednesday 11th December 2013 in Chorley
TRIBUTES have been paid to a motorcyclist who died after a collision with a car in Leyland.
David Leech, 59, from the town, died after a collision with purple Citroen Picasso around 2.35pm on Leyland Way at the junction with Bow Brook Road on November 14.
His leg and hip were fractured, and he was treated at Royal Preston Hospital before being transferred to Wigan Hospital. He was operated on but developed complications and died on November 27.
His wife Elaine and daughters Angela, Gillian and Diane have paid tribute to him, saying: “David lived in Leyland all his life and was well-known for driving his three wheeler, it was red with ‘do it sober’ on the mud flaps.
“David had many passions and one of these was to ride his motorbike. He and his wife spent many days enjoying bike rides.
“He became a granddad in 2011 and couldn’t have been prouder. William, his grandson adored him and would always associate him with his motorbike.”
Police are still investigating the collision and ask any witnesses to call 101.
