Victim of fatal crash identified as beloved local

BELOVED Warwick man John "Jack" Alldridge has been identified as the man who was hit and killed on a Warwick street last night.

Police reported the 75-year-old was crossing the highway at Wood and Wantley Sts when he was struck by a four-wheel drive.

Joe Coorey, a close friend of Mr Alldridge said the death of his mate came as a real shock.

"He was just a good, lovely man," he said.

"We went to school together at St Mary's, and I've known him my whole life."

"He was very kind to people, and good to his family," he said.

"Nothing was too much for him; he'd always help people."
