Police in Avon and Somerset have formally identified the three men killed in a tipper truck crash in Bath this week.

59-year-old Robert Parker from Cwmbran died alongside Phil Allen, 52, and Stephen Vaughan, 34, when a lorry overturned onto the car they were travelling inside.

Four-year-old Mitzi Rosanna Steady also died after the truck collided with her and her grandmother as they walked along Lansdown Lane in Bath.

Tipper truck crash

Stephen Vaughan, known to his friends as 'Stevie', was driving a Volvo saloon with Western Power director Phil Allen and his business associate Robert Parker when the incident took place.

Mr Vaughan, from Gorseinon, ran Hendy-based EliteXecutive Travel with his brother. His death has hit the community hard, with many taking to social media to pay tribute to the newlywed.

Yesterday, Heulwen Allen, mother of Mr Allen, spoke about the loss of her son, following the death of her three other children and husband. 

She said: “I had one daughter who was stillborn and another who died after a month because of something with her blood.

“I looked after Paul, who was born with Spina Bifida, for 50 years until he passed away five years ago. The only way I could get over that was thinking that he was at rest.

“Then my husband, Gerald, dropped dead in front of me with a brain haemorrhage two years ago.”

Vowing to try to carry on she added: “We have always been a close family and I will carry on for my daughter-in-law Louise, who is a wonderful person, and two grandchildren and great granddaughter.”

An investigation has been launched into the cause of the collision.

I'd just like to give my ten cents worth about why this accident happened. It is alleged that the lorry weighed 32 tons. It is also alleged that the hill has a 20% gradient. Now do the maths, the force pushing the lorry down the hill will be 32/5 or 6.4 tons. A long ton is 2240 pounds and 30 mph is 44 feet per second. Suppose the lorry is travelling at 30 mph using the brakes to stop it going any faster, how much heat do the brakes need to dissipate? The energy generated will be 6.4 x 2240 x 44 foot pounds per second which is 630784 foot pounds per second. Using kylesconverter this equates to 855 Kilowatts or 1147 horsepower. This is an astonishing amount of power and heat which drum brakes will be incapable of dealing with for more than a few seconds. Racing trucks do not use drum brakes, instead ventilated discs are used which are sprayed with water. QED
