Family pay tribute after man tragically dies following Bushey collision

The family of an ‘inspiring’ man who sadly died in a road traffic collision in Bushey have paid tribute.

Derrick McIntyre, aged 66, who lived in Watford, was involved in the collision on the morning of Friday 2 February and sadly passed away at the scene. His family continue to be supported by officers.

Paying tribute, Derrick’s family said: “Our dad, Derrick McIntyre, was a proud dad, husband, brother, son, uncle, grandfather and friend. He had a passion for music, playing the bass guitar for most of his life and blessing tracks with his groovy bassline for folks such as Jamiroquai, Roy Ayers, Beverley Knight and many more.

“Dad was a great man who influenced many that came into contact with him, inspiring and encouraging every chance he could.

“No amount of words can sum up just how special our dad was to us all – not only within our individual bonds, but as a whole. We will forever miss his love, humour and presence and will continue to spread his light. Until we meet again.”

Officers were called at around 7.38am on 2 February to a collision on the A41 North Western Avenue involving five vehicles.

The vehicles involved were Derrick’s bronze Vauxhall Astra, a silver Honda Jazz, a silver Chevrolet Orlando, a blue Ford Focus and a white Mercedes GLC.

Following the collision, two people were also taken to hospital for further treatment.

Detective Sergeant Craig Wheeler, from the Road Policing Unit, added: “Our thoughts remain with Derrick’s family and friends at this sad time.

“Our officers are continuing to establish the full circumstances of this incident, and we are still appealing for information. If you were driving in the area and saw what happened, or have any dash cam footage that might help our investigation, please contact us. You can email me with any information.”

You can report information online, or call the non-emergency number 101, quoting Op Tuello.
