The family of a father-of-three have paid their respects after his death following a horrific car accident on the A500. Chris Parsons was killed in a crash involving three cars in Barthomley on Thursday June 16.
The 29-year-old was driving home to Mostyn in Flintshire when he was involved in the collision – which closed off part of Road D from the roundabout at Junction 16 of the M6 at Weston Roundabout . He was driving a black Renault Clio when it collided with a red Ford Fiesta and a blue Seat Ateca around 4.45pm. He died at the scene.
Paying tribute to the ‘loving father’, his devastated family said: ‘Words cannot describe the grief we are going through as a family. He was a wonderful loving son, brother, uncle and father to his three amazing children, who will be sorely missed.

“He was an amazing, kind, caring and wonderful person who would go above and beyond anyone. We will not comment further as we have yet to find out the conclusion of the investigation to determine exactly what happened and we kindly wish that our privacy as a family be respected at this time.
“Rest in peace Shifty. Fly high – gone but never forgotten.”
A fundraising page has been created to raise money for Chris’s funeral and give him “the farewell he deserves”. The page reads: “I write this in complete disbelief.
“Yesterday (June 16) our Chris was returning home after helping a mate at work and was unfortunately involved in a three vehicle accident. Chris and his car being the most involved, he unfortunately lost his life at the scene.
“I am writing this for some kind of help in relieving the stress of costs for our mother and the mother of her children at such a difficult time. With such sudden events, we are just not financially ready for this.
“As a family we would be forever grateful for your help. Let’s give Chris the send off he deserves.
“Fly high my brother. You will be loved and missed forever by all of your family and friends, your three children and everyone you have come across.”
