Investigations continue after man's tragic death on Chesterfield road
Investigations are continuing after a man died in a road tragedy in Chesterfield nearly a month ago.
Jon-Paul Prigent, 47, died when a large trailer containing soil became detached from a tractor and fell on the car he was a passenger in on Station Lane, Old Whittington.
The programme manager, of Laburnum Street, Hollingwood, was giving one of his children a driving lesson at the time of the incident at around 1.30pm on July 28, Chesterfield Coroner’s Court heard.
The tractor driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and subsequently released under investigation.
On Friday, a spokesperson for Derbyshire Constabulary said: “The tractor driver is still released under investigation as enquiries continue.
“Anyone with any information that may be able to help with the investigation can come forward and contact us on 101.”
Many tributes were paid to Mr Prigent – who was a former serviceman – after his death.
