Tribute paid to man who died following collision on A1017

The family of a man who died following a road traffic collision on the A1017 at Haverhill have paid tribute to him.

Officers were called shortly before 10.30pm on Thursday 19th August, following reports of a collision involving a red Hyundai Getz and a pedestrian.

The pedestrian, a man aged in his 40s, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, where he sadly died on Saturday 21st August as a result of the injuries he sustained.

Pending formal Coroner’s inquest proceedings, police have provisionally identified the deceased as Clifford Anness, aged 48, from Haverhill

Mr Anness’s family have asked us to issue the following tribute on their behalf:

“In loving memory of Clifford Anness who will sadly be missed by all his family and friends. Clifford Anness, aged 48, sadly passed away after a very bad car accident that took place in Haverhill on the 19th August. Clifford enjoyed life to the fullest until he had a stroke in 2019 but he still carried on with life, he loved spending time with everyone. R.I.P Cliffy until we meet again, love you always love your family and friends. Your mum is going to miss you lots.”

Officers are still appealing for any witnesses to the collision to come forward, along with anyone driving in the area prior to the incident who has a dashcam in their vehicle.
