Tributes have been paid to a Mansfield bridegroom-to-be who worked at Greencore in Worksop and died following a road traffic accident at the weekend.
Adam Falowski, of Wallis Drive, was crossing the road at St Peter’s Way in Mansfield when he was involved in a collision with a grey Vauxhall Corsa on Sunday afternoon.
The 32-year-old, who is from Poland, had been taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre but passed away on Monday.
His partner, Patrycja Mazowita, whom he was set to marry in Poland this August, said he had been in to town to buy groceries when the accident happened.
A close friend of Adam, Tomasz Cirug, who worked with him at Greencore sandwich factory in Worksop and would have become Adam’s brother-in-law said that Adam had lived in Mansfield for about 18 months.
“He was a very friendly man, everybody liked him,” he added.
“It has been such a big shock, I was on my way to work when my wife phoned me to say Adam had been in an accident, we couldn’t believe it.”
“He had been planning for his wedding, saving money for it, and now he’s gone.”
His partner and family are now planning a funeral in England, followed by cremation with his ashes then flown back to Poland.
His mother is set to travel from Poland for the funeral. Meanwhile, the driver of the Corsa was taken to King’s Mill Hospital for minor injuries and later released.
A 52-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and has been released on bail.
