A JAGUAR Land Rover worker died after being crushed by an HGV as he lost control of his motorbike, a jury has concluded.

Kieren Rowe died after he collided with the back of the vehicle as he was leaving work at the JLR plant on September 26 last year.

The father-of-one had been unable to stop in time when the lorry pulled out and he lost control of his bike, ending up underneath the vehicle.

The 23-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause of death was given as aspiration of blood consistent with a road traffic collision.

Speaking shortly after his death the family paid tribute to him.

They said: “We are devastated to report that our beautiful boy was tragically taken away from us on Monday – his life has been snatched from him far too soon.

“Kieren was a loving, caring, witty lad with an amazing personality and huge heart.

“He was a much loved son, big brother and an unbelievably amazing, loving daddy to his little girl Alice.

“Kieren was so much to so many family and friends.

“Our hearts are truly broken and he will be missed every minute of every day.

“We would like to say thank you to all the emergency services, Jaguar Land Rover, family and friends for their support.

“We also appreciate all the beautiful messages and comments we read about Kieren.”
