The parents of a 20-year-old man who died following a road traffic collision in Northamptonshire have paid tribute to their son.
Cameron Arneaud, who had recently moved to Rushden from Bedfordshire, died at the scene of a road traffic collision at about 9.15pm on Friday (December 22. 2023) in Irthlingborough Road, Finedon, at the junction with Oxford Street.
Cameron was travelling home from work on his motorbike when it was in collision with a Toyota Prius.
Police arrested the 27-year-old Toyota driver, who has been bailed pending further inquiries.
In a statement issued today by his parents Alison and Dan, they paid a heartfelt tribute to their son.
The statement said: “Cameron was a polite, well-mannered, young man. He was loving, caring, thoughtful and affectionate and loved by all who knew him.
“He was a good student in school and received As and Bs in his GCSEs, before he enrolled at the WIXAMS Football Academy for two years followed by a year at Bedfordshire University.
“Cameron always kept out of trouble and had recently got himself a good job with the National Accident Helpline.
“He loved football - Arsenal was his team - he also enjoyed gaming and spending time with his friends. He especially loved his family - they were the most important thing to him. He just loved life.”
Police are appealing for witnesses who were in the area at the time of the collision and who may have seen the incident or the lead up to it.
In particular, investigators are aware that a Stagecoach bus arrived shortly after the incident and there may have been witnesses on this bus.
