Tribute paid to “caring” man who died in Rossendale collision

A family has paid tribute to a ‘kind and caring’ man who died in a road traffic collision in Rossendale. 

Michael McTaggart (20) from Rossendale, was driving a Renault Megane which collided with another car on Burnley Road East on Sunday morning.

He was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Paying tribute to Michael, his family said: “Michael Pearce McTaggart was an avid drummer in his spare time and played in multiple bands.

“Growing up, Michael was a pupil at Haslingden High School and more recently worked as a carer, a testament to his kind and caring nature.

“He was the beloved son of Paul and Joan, and sibling to Kurt, Matthew and Nicole, and he will be deeply missed by his family and friends.”

Officers investigating the collision are appealing for residents on Burnley Road East – between Waterfoot and the scene of the collision – who have CCTV or ring door bell footage, to contact police.

If any drivers had dashcam footage from the area around 3am on Sunday, they are asked to get in contact by calling 101 or emailing [email protected], quoting log 0203 of May 19, 2024.
