Maldon: Tributes paid to 'wonderful' man who died in Tolleshunt D'Arcy crash
Touching tributes have been paid to a 22-year-old man who died following a two-car crash in Tolleshunt D'Arcy.
Thomas Payne, of Beckingham Street, Tolleshunt Major, was badly hurt when the grey Mazda 2 he was driving was in collision with a grey Ford Focus in Beckingham Road at 7.30am on Monday.
He was airlifted to Royal London Hospital after sustaining serious injuries, but he died yesterday.
Mr Payne’s cousin Jenna Payne, who is not local, described him as a “wonderful” man, who was “an example to any young boy”.
She said: “He always had a smile and was always kind. We are all so proud of him.”
Mr Payne leaves behind his mum Gill, dad Tony, who are involved in St Nicholas Church, Tolleshunt Major, as well as sisters Hannah and Eleanor.
Rev Geoffrey Bayliss, priest at St Nicholas Church in Tolleshunt Major, said: “It is a great tragedy."
