Tributes have been paid to a “hard working” young Lowestoft man who died after the motorcycle he was riding was involved in a collision with two vehicles.
Jed Mulholland, 24, died on Monday after the Suzuki motorcycle he was on was involved in a crash with a Ford Transit van and a Ford Focus on Tom Crisp Way at about 11.30am.
Mr Mulholland had worked at the Pontin’s holiday camp in Pakefield as a maintenance worker since the start of February.
Manager Laura Bowles said: “He was a great asset to the team, very hard working and we are all devastated by what has happened.”
Mr Mulholland had also boxed for the Triple A boxing club at the Nirvana gym on the Lowestoft south industrial estate several years ago as did his younger brother.
John Cremin, who runs the club, said: “He was a lively kid. It is a terrible shame. Our condolences go to his family and friends.”
Mr Mulholland was also known locally by the name Jed Molyneux.
Floral tributes have been left at the scene of the fatal crash and a sign was put up there saying ‘R.I.P. Jed’.
A Facebook tribute page had also been set up called R.I.P Jed Molyneux.
Comments left on the page include “So so very sad, rest peacefully jed thoughts r with ur family and friends and this awful time x” and “So shocked. Thinking of all the family. RIP Jed, taken far, far too soon xx”.
Mr Mulholland died at the scene of the crash after attempts to save his life were made by emergency services personnel.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the fatal crash and are particularly keen to trace the rider of a blue motorcycle that was seen in the area at the time. Anyone with information call the serious collision investigation team at Suffolk police on 101.
