​A man killed in a  five car accident in Gloucestershire has been named as 34-year-old Andy Winter.

Shocked family and friends of Mr Winter have paid touching tributes to him.

Bunches of flowers have been tied to a sign at the scene of the crash on the B4066 near Dursley, and many expressed their sadness at his death.

The VW Golf he was driving was in a collision involving four other cars at Tait’s Hill, Stinchcombe and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mr Winter, from Dursley, was 34. Three people were taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital with minor injuries.

“RIP Andy you were truly a top bloke known by all, and will be truly missed xxx,” wrote Laura Sage, who created a tribute page on social networking website, Facebook, in his memory.

One message on flowers at the scene of the crash simply said: “Will miss you. Hope you are being good (in heaven I hope).”

Gloucestershire police are appealing for witnesses to the collision which happened at approximately 10.10pm on Tuesday, January 19.

A black Vauxhall Corsa, a blue Skoda Octavia, silver Citroën ZX and a BMW were also involved.

The road was closed for approximately nine hours while the emergency services worked at the scene.

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to contact police on 0845 090 1234 quoting incident number 476 of January 19. Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The Gloucester Coroner has been informed of the death.

In a separate incident a 31-year-old man from Nailsworth is being treated for life threatening injuries in hospital following a crash on Tuesday morning.

The incident happened at approximately 11.05am on the A46 between Dunkirk and Calcot crossroads, south of Nailsworth, and involved the man’s Honda motorbike and a blue van.

The van driver was uninjured.

The road was closed for approximately three hours while the emergency services worked at the scene.

    Kerry, Dursley How do you know I dont know the facts! All I have to say is that it will all come out in the Inquest. And a Piece of Metal! Do you know how it feels to have a car hurtling around a corner at you at 60mph??? Seeing that everytime when you close your eyes, Then your told that the person that nearly killed you should NOT have been in a car. NO I THOUGHT NOT. No one should die, no one should loose a husband, dad, cousin, friend whatever. But what is left for the other people is NOT just a piece of METAL.

    Im very sorry for Andy and his family but can I just point out for 1 second, he nearly killed 5 people through driving at very high speeds. I sympathise greatly with his family and friends but could we show some respect for the other people involved who still have to live with the consequences of his actions. This man had no license and was un insured.
