Rochdale Observer - - BYGONE DAYS - Alexandra.rucki@trin­i­tymir­ @Alexan­draRucki

HUN­DREDS of trib­utes have been paid to a pop­u­lar su­per­mar­ket worker who died af­ter be­ing knocked down by a car.

Khameron Ali was left fight­ing for his life af­ter be­ing hit by a Vaux­hall As­tra in Shaw, Old­ham, last Satur­day.

The 26-year-old, from Shaw, was taken to hospi­tal in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion af­ter suf­fer­ing se­ri­ous head in­juries in the in­ci­dent, but lost his fight for life on Thurs­day.

The driver re­mained at the scene to speak to po­lice and no ar­rests have been made.

Khameron worked at the Tesco Ex­press on Mar­ket Street in Shaw and vol­un­teered with the Sal­va­tion Army.

The store is hold­ing a col­lec­tion for his fam­ily.

Gary Robin­son, man­ager of the Shaw Tesco Ex­press, on Mar­ket Street, said: “Khameron was a won­der­ful young man, and all of us who worked with him are in­cred­i­bly shocked and sad­dened by his death.

“We will re­mem­ber Khameron as the most pos­i­tive and cheer­ful per­son that you could hope to meet. He was great with peo­ple and was al­ways po­lite and help­ful – bright­en­ing peo­ple’s day with his smile and the in­ter­est he took in them.

“The many trib­utes that have been paid to Khameron show the dif­fer­ence that he made to so many peo­ple’s daily lives, and I know that he will be missed not only by his fam­ily and col­leagues, but by peo­ple through­out the whole com­mu­nity.”

Hun­dreds of peo­ple have also posted trib­utes to Khameron on so­cial me­dia.

Writ­ing on Face­book, Natalie Lof­tus said: “This is dev­as­tat­ing. R.I.P. Khameron.

“I think the whole com­mu­nity who ever in­ter­acted with him will agree that he was the most kind, well­man­nered, hard-work­ing, and one of the loveli­est peo­ple around.

“Shop­ping at Tesco Shaw def­i­nitely won’t be the same. Far too young to be gone.”

Kee­ley Dawn Berry said: “No words. One of the nicest hu­mans to grace this world. R.I.P. Khameron.”

Kate Bul­lock wrote: “Ab­so­lutely dev­as­tated. He was the best. A plea­sure to work with and a great per­son through and through. You will al­ways be in our hearts.”

The in­ci­dent took place shortly be­fore 11.50am on Satur­day, Septem­ber 2, on Crompton Way.

Sgt Brian Orr, of GMP’s se­ri­ous col­li­sion in­ves­ti­ga­tion unit, said: “This is a tragic set of cir­cum­stances that have sadly taken the life of a man and I want to ex­press my sin­cere con­do­lences to his fam­ily.

“We are ap­peal­ing for any­one that wit­nessed the col­li­sion, or may have any CCTV or dash-cam footage, to get in touch.”
