The family of a man from Reading, who died in a crash on the A34, have described him as an ‘excellent dad and loving husband.’

43 year old Vipin Kumar was killed in the collision between a lorry, van and a car on the southbound carriageway at Bullington Cross six days ago.

Emergency services were called to the scene following the three vehicle incident involving a lorry, a Peugeot van and a Toyota Auris being driven by Mr Kumar.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

In a statement Vipin's family said:

“Vipin was an excellent dad that no one could compete with.

“He was a loving husband and was a mischievous son.

“He had a plethora of friends and he had a very special quality that made every friend feel that they were his best friend.

“He was always jolly and his sarcastic comments used to win hearts in no time.

“He is and always will be greatly missed and he will remain in our hearts for years to come."

A 40 year old lorry driver arrested in connection with the crash has been released under investigation.
