Ambulance service tribute to loved colleague Jeremy Daw who died in A49 crash

THE ambulance service has paid a loving tribute to their colleague Jeremy Daw, known to his friends as Jack, killed in a crash on the A49 yesterday.

Nathan Hudson, West Midlands Ambulance Service, emergency services operation delivery director, said: “Yesterday we lost a friend, a colleague and a family lost their loved one in a very tragic incident that happened in Hereford.

“Jeremy Daw – Jack – was a loving husband, a father and for us within the ambulance service he was not just a colleague but a dear friend as well.

“Jeremy worked as a paramedic and extended his retirement to ensure that he could come back and fight the Covid response that the NHS has put forward.


“Unfortunately, yesterday Jack, as he is known at the station to his close colleagues, passed away in a tragic incident.

“Nobody else was involved within the incident overall. It was an accident at this present moment in time.

“We are working with West Mercia Police to ensure that we can help them with the response to this incident.

“I would encourage anybody who did see the incident please come forward and contact West Mercia Police.”

Mr Hudson added that the service had received some ‘unbelievable’ messages of condolence from across the country.

“Across the whole of the service everybody is mourning and also across the whole of the country really,” he added.

“We’ve had some unbelievable messages from people particularly from other ambulance services and other emergency services.”
