Truman was a brave, kind soul who went the extra mile for those he cared about. He was a loving brother and loyal friend.
“He will be missed by many and the world will never be the same again – but we will hold his memory close to our hearts every day.
“As brothers, we’ve always had that bond. We’ve been best friends since the beginning and we’ve always been willing to face anything together. But nothing can prepare us for what we’re dealing with right now. Nothing can describe the loss we feel.”
The grieving Truman family said he was the best younger brother and son. They added, “We love and miss you, Truman.”
Truman’s girlfriend, Lauren, also shared poignant words in his memory, saying, “Thank you for giving me the best memories of my life and filling my heart with so much love. Rest in peace my beautiful friend.”
“Words cannot describe how much I will miss your sweet smile, your infectious laugh, and your silly and goofy personality. You truly are the kindest person this earth will ever grace. Our love will never end.”
After the horrific accident, a full investigation into the cause of the accident was launched and a woman was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, though she was later released under investigation.
Today, Sergeant Dave Roberts, of Northumbria Police’s motorized patrol section, has renewed his appeal for any witnesses to come forward.
Sergeant Roberts said, “It’s clear how much Truman was loved and our thoughts are still with his family and friends at this difficult time.”
“I’d like to ask that their privacy be respected as they try to deal with this week’s events.
“We are desperate to get the answers they deserve, and today I’m back asking anyone with information, or witnessing the crash, to get in touch.
“We especially want to hear from anyone in the area who believes they saw a white Hyundai driving in the hours leading up to the collision. Please check out any dashcam footage and let us know if you see anything that might interest you.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Northumbria Police via their website or by calling 101, quoting record NP-20221120-0097.
