Sister pays tribute to tragic late brother

The sister of a man, who was tragically killed after being struck by four vehicles, has paid tribute to her late brother.

Darren Stawman, 43, was killed after being struck by the cars while out for a late night walk in Mickleby on Sunday March 24. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Originally from Scarborough, he lived in the town for the best part of his life, but in recent years he had been living in Bridlington.

Now his sister, Lisa Bushby, has paid tribute to her late brother, describing him as a “lovable rogue” who had a “heart of gold”.

“He would do anything for anybody if he could.

“It’s just so tragic the way that he has come to his death.

“He will be greatly missed by all of the family.”

Mr Stawman died after walking along the A174 at the junction with the B1266 at around 8.30pm, while wearing dark clothing.

Police are still searching for clues as to how Mr Stawman came to be walking along the treacherous road at that time of night.

He first collided with a grey Alfa Romeo 147 car which was travelling from Staithes towards Whitby.

He was then subsequently struck by a grey Nissan X-trail, a black Peugeot 308 and a black Peugeot 407.

Police believe Mr Stawman may have been dropped off by a taxi, and they’ve recently renewed their appeal for witnesses to the tragic accident.

Traffic Sergeant Hamish Halloway said: “The investigation has revealed Mr Stawman’s movements on Friday and Saturday. However we are seeking any information that can assist with Mr Stawman’s movements between 9.30am and 8.30pm, when the collision occurred.”

Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have seen him after 9.30am on Sunday 24 March 2013, up to the time he died. Call 101.
