APPEAL: Kind and caring Maidstone man named as second M26 crash victim

Tuesday 20th October 2020

A FUNDRAISING page has been set up in memory of the second man killed in a motorway crash last week.

 David Boaler, who was in his 40s, died at the scene following a collision on the M26 on October 15.

A GoFundMe page has now been set up to pay for funeral costs by friend Ben Morton.

Mr Morton wrote: "Anyone that knew Dave knew what a kind and caring person he was, someone that always went out his way to help others.

"He would do anything for his friends and was always there if you needed him.

"He always had a smile on his face and if there was ever a bad situation he would do what he could to turn it into a good one."

More than £900 has been raised in two days.
