A family have paid an emotional tribute to a man who was killed in a collision on the M58 motorway at Skelmersdale in May. 

Danny Aitchison, 46, (pictured), died following the collision on 17th May which involved two articulated large goods vehicles and two cars.

Paying tribute to Danny, who is from Liverpool, his family said: “We are all still in shock, we are devastated.

“Our family and Danny’s friends will always remember him as a generous, hardworking family man with a mischievous sense of humour.

“Danny was always laughing and joking, he would love to take the mickey out of us if we took ourselves too seriously.

“We are still almost waiting for him to come round to our Mum’s for breakfast on Sunday.

“Kerry and the kids were the world to Danny. His daughter Ella, 15, and son Jack, 9, are a credit to him.

“All our energy will be going into looking after Ella – who has been doing her GCSEs – and Jack.

“We don’t know when we will be able to come to terms with what has happened to Danny.

“Rest in peace Danny, lots of love from Mum, Andrew, Scott, Kerry, Ella, Jack and all your friends xx.” 


The police investigation into the collision is continuing.
