Family pay tribute to 'always smiling' boy, 6, who died in bike crash

The devastated family of a 6-year-old boy who tragically died in a crash have paid a touching tribute to him.

Kidus Wondwose was riding his bicycle on Sunday when he was involved in a collision with a car in Hulme, Manchester.

His family said: ‘Kidus was a happy, friendly boy who was always smiling. He was very smart and his mum was proud that he was the smartest boy in his class at school.

‘He loved his family especially his mum, aunty and brother. He had lots of friends and loved to be out playing games with them. He also loved to play football to go swimming.

‘He liked Manchester United and his favourite player was Marcus Rashford. This lively, bubbly young boy had his whole life to look forward to and dreamed of being a policeman when he grew up.

‘His whole family are devastated by his death and are struggling to comprehend that they will never see him again.’

The emergency services rushed to the scene in Wilmott Street just before 6pm but Kidus was pronounced dead a short time later.

A 32-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving, and has been released under investigation.

Sergeant Joseph Barron from Greater Manchester Police said: ‘This was a devastating collision. Our thoughts are with the boy’s loved ones at what is understandably a heart-breaking time for them.

‘I would appeal to anyone with dashcam footage from the area shortly before or at the time of the incident to contact us.’

Anyone with information should call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously.
