A man who died following a road traffic collision in Basildon last month has been named as 47-year-old Mohamed Mohellebi.

Police were called shortly after 7.30pm on Friday February 21 to reports of a collision on Courtauld Road involving a white Kia Optima and a lorry.

Despite the efforts of the paramedics, the Kia driver, who was identified as Mr Mohellebi, died at the scene.

In a tribute his family described him as a devout family man

“Mohamed was a licensed Billericay cab driver for ten years, a devout family man with three children aged 14, 11 and five.

“He made an impact on many peoples’ lives and will be greatly missed.”
