Tributes for Kempston woman after Kimbolton Road collision
The family of Debra Swindle, 57, who died following a collision in Bedford last week have spoken of their, “loving mother, nanny, daughter, sister, partner and dear friend”.
Debra, 57, from Kempston, was crossing Kimbolton Road at approximately 8.00am on Tuesday, 29 November when she was involved in a collision with a Vauxhall convertible car.
Emergency services attended and Debra was taken to the hospital, where she died shortly afterwards.
In their tribute, Debra’s family said, “[she] was loved by all, and touched the lives of so many”.
They added, “with a heart of gold she continually looked out for and supported her family, along with those she worked with and cared for throughout her long career.
“Debra’s smile and infectious laughter will turn to memories. Her kindness and love will never be forgotten. Taken too soon, Debra will be devastatingly missed. May she rest in peace and her memory live on.”
Police continue to appeal for witnesses to the collision and urge anyone with information to come forward.
Detective Inspector Garry Webb, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “It is vital we establish what has led to the tragic death of Debra and our thoughts are very much with her loved ones at this time.
“This happened in a busy area at a time where there is likely to have been lots of people passing in their cars or on foot.
“Please get in touch if you saw anything or have any information which can help our enquiries.
“We would be especially keen to hear from anyone with dash cam or other video footage which can help with our investigation.”
