The family of Kevin Nix who died on June 27 after being hit by a car in Crowland three days before, have today made the following statement.

"The whole family, and especially his three children, are devastated by the needless and untimely death of Kevin. He will be sorely missed by them, his work mates and friends.

"The family would like to express its gratitude to the doctors and nurses at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for their unstinted efforts in trying to save him, and for their kindness and support throughout this traumatic time.

"Thanks are also extended to everyone who has been in touch to offer condolences, many of whom will wish to attend Kevin’s funeral. The family will endeavour to ensure that all are notified once arrangements are made, but due to the circumstances of Kevin’s passing, this may take a little while."
