The family of a young man who died in a motorcycle crash while on his way to his dream job at Aston Martin have paid tribute to the “bright, intelligent and happy” young man who “had his whole future ahead of him”.
Jordan Talbot, 21, from Radyr in Cardiff, died after a three-vehicle crash near Cardiff Airport on the morning of 23 November.
Emergency services arrived at the scene of the collision which took place at about 5.20am on the A4226 in Barry and involved a white Vauxhall Astra, a blue Honda motorcycle and a heavy goods vehicle.
He was treated by emergency services but was pronounced deceased at the scene as a result of his injuries, WalesOnline reports.
His family have now paid tribute to Mr Talbot describing him as a "bright, intelligent and happy young man.”
They said: “We are all completely devastated with the sudden loss of Jordan. He was such a bright, intelligent and happy young man who had his whole future ahead of him.
“He was simply riding his motorcycle to work to do his dream job at Aston Martin when the collision occurred.
“He had worked so hard to get this job and he knew how proud we all were of him.
“He was such a kind, loving person and had a wicked sense of humour, always laughing or cracking jokes around the house. Everybody who knew him did not have a bad word to say.
“In his short life he had touched so many people and left behind so many happy memories that we will forever cherish.
“As a family we would like to thank everybody for their kind words and support but would particularly like to thank all the emergency service at the scene who tried to help Jordan.”
South Wales Police say they are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the collision.
Anyone who has any information, or has dashcam footage that may assist the investigation, should contact South Wales Police quoting reference 2100410553.
