Police name man who died following Ockbrook collision

Posted on 10th October 2018

A man who tragically died after being hit by a car on Dale Road in Ockbroook has been named as 22-year-old Ryan Parkins from Ilkeston.

Ryan’s family have issued the following tribute: “Ryan was a much loved son, brother, uncle and partner who will be greatly missed. He is a kind-hearted person who has been taken too soon.

“Ryan was a kind, caring and thoughtful young man whose absence will leave an empty space in all our hearts.

“There are no words to describe the pain and loss we are feeling as a result of this tragedy.

“Many people have already contacted our family offering condolences, and they all have our sincere thanks for their kindness. I would, however, ask that our privacy is now respected.”

At around 10.05pm on Thursday, October 4, we were called to reports of a black Jaguar colliding with a pedestrian. Ryan was pronounced dead at the scene.

We remain keen to hear from any witnesses to the collision, or anyone who drove on Dale Road around the time of the accident with dash cam footage.
