In a statement released by police, Jayme’s family have paid tribute to him, calling him a “friend to many” who will be dearly missed.

His family added: “Jayme was a much-loved son, father, brother and friend to many and will be greatly missed.”

They also expressed their thanks to the staff at James Cook University Hospital who cared for Jayme.

The single-vehicle collision had already claimed the life of “much loved” dad Kellam Hodgson who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kellam’s grieving family paid tribute to him, by saying: “Kellam was a much-loved son, husband, father, brother, uncle and friend.”
