eDriving Fleet’s Dr Will Murray awarded prestigious posthumous award
eDriving Fleet’s research director Dr Will Murray, who passed away suddenly last year, has been recognised for his dedication to road safety.
Will, who was a pre-eminent international occupational road safety expert, was named posthumously as the winner of the Kevin Storey Award for Outstanding Commitment to Road Safety at the recent Brake Fleet Safety Awards.
Will passed away in December 2016, leaving behind wife Marie and sons Sam and Joe. All three were in attendance, together with Will’s sister Janet, to accept the award on Will’s behalf. The award was presented by Mary Williams, OBE, Brake chief executive, who founded the charity in 1995 with Will’s help. Will continued to serve as a trustee for 21 years.
This year’s Brake Fleet Safety Awards also saw the introduction of a new award in Will’s memory. The eDriving-sponsored Dr Will Murray Award for Action and Analysis in 2017 was presented to FM Conway Ltd.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
