Tributes have been paid to a dad killed in a horror smash on the M6 in Lancashire.
Graham Whitwam, 53, from Huddersfield, has been named as the man who died in the collision on the northbound carriageway, close to junction 35 at Carnforth.
The incident happened at around 5.50am on Saturday, September 15.
A family tribute said: “Graham was suddenly taken from us in such tragic circumstances on Saturday 15th September, in the early morning.
“Graham was a well-loved husband to Helen, son to Annie, loved brother to Lynda, Richard and Sandra, father to Tiffany and loved step-father to Nicky, Natalie and Georgina.
“Graham was known and loved by many, and known as “G-Dubs” and “Dell Boy” through his talents of doing many jobs.
“His main passion was cars especially making carriages out of old bangers. He will be truly missed by all who knew him.”
It is believed the collision occurred when the white Transit-type van drove into the back of the car transporter.
Lancashire Police said the impact rolled the transporter, while the van failed to stop and was driven off.
A police spokesman confirmed a 46-year-old man from Warwickshire was arrested shortly afterwards and questioned by officers.
He has since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
A woman who was in the passenger seat of the vehicle being driven by the victim was taken to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary with minor injuries, but has now been released.
