Tributes have been paid to a young man who was killed in a collision in Bradley Road, Burrough Green, on March 16.

Sebestian Andrzej Chlebosz, 23, of Aureole Walk, Newmarket, suffered fatal injuries when the red Audi 80 he was a rear seat passenger in was in collision with a blue Ford Focus and a yellow JCB.

Sebestian’s employer, Martin Hughes of Maze Rattan in Haverhill, said that all three people in the Audi worked in the company’s warehouse. Sebestian had been there nearly four years.

“You would never wish to meet a better guy,” said Mr Hughes. “He always had a smile on his face there was nothing he wouldn’t do. I’m just totally gutted.

“We are dealing with things the best we can. We are always just so bright and chirpy but there’s a bit of a cloud over us at the moment. It will have a big impact on us as a business. To have one of us taken away is horrible. He was a brilliant person to have around. He was a credit to any business.”

Mr Hughes, who visited the site of the collision himself, said the scene was horrific. The company decided to shut the warehouse for the rest of the day to let staff come to terms with what had happened.

Officers were called at 8.11am on Monday, March 16, to reports of a three vehicle collision in Bradley Road, Burrough Green.

The casualties were treated at the scene by crews from the East of England Ambulance Service, the East Anglian Air Ambulance, a Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) and the volunteer doctor from SARS.

The Suffolk Fire & Rescue Service were also in attendance and helped with the extrication of several of the patients.

SARS doctor, Fiona Virgo, who attended the scene, said: “On coming across the scene on my way to work it was immediately apparent that this was a significant incident which was made more complex by the JCB being on top of the vehicle.

“There were many emergency personnel present at the scene who all worked together in a very challenging incident environment.”

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident to come forward, urging anyone with information to call the roads policing unit on 101.
