Daily Echo: Wayne Danaher Wayne Danaher

A man who died at the wheel of his car in Fair Oak has been named by police.

Wayne Danaher, 48, from West End, was driving his grey Ford Mondeo along Mortimer’s Lane at around 12.45 pm on Sunday when, for reasons yet to be established, he lost control of his car and collided with a wall.

Paramedics battled to save his life, but Mr Danaher, who worked at Ford, died later at Southampton General Hospital.

Police are working on the theory that he suffered a heart attack.

His wife, Kerry Danaher, has paid tribute to her husband.

She said: “On Sunday my whole world fell apart, when my best friend and loving husband Wayne passed away.

“Wayne was the centre of his family's life; a wonderful, husband, father, son, brother, and friend.

“He was a passionate man, who loved his job at Ford, fishing with his dad, but most of all his family and friends.

“We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to the people who were there with him, the Dutch couple, fireman, paramedics and air ambulance we know you did your best for him.

“Our world will never be the same. We will love and miss him always.”

Anyone that saw the crash, or the car beforehand, should call PC Emma Clifford at Totton Roads Policing Unit on 101 quoting Operation Sampford.

Before I say what needs to be said, please let me thank mine and my husbands friends and colleagues for thier kind comments.

I would like to set the story straight as far as my husband is concerned! my Husband was a fantastic driver, it was part of his job. The only reason my beautiful husband collided with a wall was so that he did not hurt anyone else on the road, whilest having a massive heart attacK!!! i WISH SOMETIMES THE FACTS WOULD BE OBTAINED BEFORE MAKING IT SOUND LIKE HE COULDNT CONTROL OR DRIVE A CAR! IF IT WERE NOT FOR HIS ACTIONS BEFORE HE DIED HE COULD HAVE INVOLVED SOMEONE ELSE IN THE ACCIDENT.
SINCERELY
MRS WAYNE DANAHER
