Kevin Matley died after a crash between a Mercedes and his motorbike on Wythenshawe Road in Sale.

The devastated daughter of a man killed in a motorbike crash in Sale has remembered her ‘best friend’ dad. Kevin Matley, 43, died after his motorbike collided with a Mercedes on Wythenshawe Road on Friday night (28th October).

Police arrived at the scene shortly before 7pm, where Kevin, who had been riding his green Kawasaki bike, was taken to hospital by paramedics, but sadly died shortly after. The driver of the car remained at the scene and is said to be assisting police with their enquiries.

Paying tribute to her dad in the Manchester Evening News, Kelsey Matley, 22, who lives in Sale, said he was ‘so funny’ and ‘never really grew up’.

Kevin was a father to three and had one granddaughter.

“He was like a kid. He never really grew up. He always made sure to tell me how proud he was.

“He was the funniest guy ever. He loved that bike, that was his fifth kid, that was his baby. He just never grew up. He was so funny.

“He didn’t care what anyone thought. He was my best friend and he absolutely loved his granddaughter. He was so happy and so proud of her. Me and the boys know that he loved us.”
