Stewart Macgregor, 53, crashed his e scooter on a trip to check whether there was fuel available at a local petrol station. He was taken to hospital with a life-threatening head injury but died two days later.

His wife Nicky MacGregor said he had only just “popped out” when the incident happened in Stevenage.

Mrs Macregor said: “I, our children and family are totally devastated that Stewart is no longer with us.

“He was a loving husband, son, brother, dad, uncle and friend, our lives will never be the same without him. He was such a caring, loving person.

“I am totally devastated that I won’t ever see him again, he had only popped out to see if the petrol garage had fuel.”

Police officers are still appealing for witnesses after the incident on September 24.

It is believed no other vehicle was involved in the incident.

It is understood several people stopped to assist after the accident and the East of England Ambulance Service attended the scheme.
Sergeant Sam Cordingley, spokesperson for the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit has urged anyone who may have been in the area to review any footage.

He said: “Our thoughts remain with Stewart’s family at this difficult time.

“We would politely request that their privacy is respected.

“We continue to investigate the incident and would appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision, or the moments prior to it, who has not already come forward, to contact us.

“If you have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle and were travelling in the area at the time of the collision, please review your footage to see if you have captured anything of note.”
