THE grieving family of a teenager have paid tribute to a “one in a million” youngster and “amazing son” who was killed in a road accident in Woodville.
Lucas Whitnall, from Coalville, was riding a motorcycle when he was involved in a collision with a lorry on the A511 Ashby Road in Woodville on Tuesday, November 6.
Emergency services were called, but despite the best efforts of paramedics, Lucas was pronounced dead at the scene.
The 17-year-old’s family have now paid tribute to the “kind and caring” young man who helped anyone who needed it.
A statement issued by the family said: “Lucas was a very positive young man with a kind and very caring approach to people he met. He never had a bad word to say about anyone.
“When you were down, he would lift you up. He helped anyone who needed it.
“Lucas had an amazing sense of humour and such a direct approach to life. He worked hard, knew where he wanted to go and what he wanted to achieve.
“He was an amazing son and a kind, supportive big brother. Lucas was one in a million and will be missed so much by the people who knew and loved him.”
The road, near the junction with Hepworth Road, was closed for almost six hours while police investigation work was carried out at the scene.
The police investigation is still on going, said a police spokesman.
