A motorcyclist involved in a collision in Barnsley earlier this week has sadly died.

The man’s family yesterday named him and paid tribute to their beloved son.

On Wednesday at 7.34am, emergency services attended reports of a road traffic collision on Park Road in Worsbrough involving a silver Toyota Yaris and a grey Honda motorcycle.

The motorcyclist, now named as 25-year-old Aaron Smith from Hoyland, was taken to hospital by ambulance with a serious head injury. He sadly died on Thursday.

Aaron’s family has released a tribute to their son.

They said: “AJ is our beautiful son now and forever. He made us the proudest parents in the world. AJ was caring and thoughtful about his family, friends and even people he had never met, and would help in any way he could without thinking about it.

“He has had a wonderful life. Even though it has only been 25 short years, he has made every minute count.

“He is truly going to be missed so, so much by everyone, but by fulfilling AJ’s last wish of being an organ donor there is part of AJ walking around and helping people.

“We would like to give a big thank you to the passers-by who stopped and actually gave assistance to our darling son. Thank you very much.”

As the investigation into Aaron’s death continues, police remain keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision and anyone who was travelling in the area at the time and has dashcam footage, including footage of the vehicles prior to the collision.
