The family of a man who died after being hit by a car in Chippenham have paid tribute to him.

Justin Edhouse, 49 and from the town, has been named by police as the pedestrian killed at the junction of Gladstone Road and Avenue La Fleche after the incident at around 5.20pm on Sunday, December 17.

In a tribute, his family said: “Justin was a beloved husband, son, brother and uncle who will be sorely missed by not just his wife, family, friends and colleagues but by everyone who ever knew him.”

Justin’s family have asked for any donations to be made to Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

They are being supported by specialist trained officers and our thoughts remain with them.

Investigators continue to conduct enquiries into the incident and are particularly keen to hear from the driver of a red vehicle thought to be at the scene at the time who may have witnessed or captured a dash cam of the incident.

The car may then have turned left onto Gladstone Street and may not be aware of the incident taking place.

Anybody able to help should call the Serious Collision Investigation team on 01225 694597 and quote log number 229 of Sunday, December 17.
