AN INQUEST has been opened this morning (Friday) into the death of a man killed in a crash on the A60 between Church Warsop and Cuckney.

Luke Winter was killed when the Citroen Saxo he was driving crashed with a Ford Fiesta at about 7.45pm on Wednesday.

A number of floral tributes have been left at the scene.

The road, which is a notorious accident blackspot, was closed by police following the crash.

A police spokesman said: “The driver of the Citroen was taken to King’s Mill Hospital, where he subsequently died.

“A man driving the Ford Fiesta sustained serious injuries and has been taken to Sheffield Hallam Hospital for treatment.

“Another man, who was a passenger in the vehicle, is currently at King’s Mill Hospital in a stable condition.”

It is believed Mr Winter lived in Langwith and was expecting a child with his partner.

One message left with flowers at the scene said: “Goodnight for now my friend, nobody will ever forget you that ever met you.

“A piece of me has gone with you but a piece of you has been left with in me which in time will make me stronger.”

Another card read: “Always love you Lukey. I’ve lost my wing man don’t know what I’m going to do without you. I will always be thinking of you, love you big lad.”

An inquest was opened at Nottinghamshire Coroner’s Court and adjourned while further reports are carried out.

Anyone with any information or who witnessed the collision is asked to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
