Family of student killed in road traffic collision on his first day at University of Liverpool pay tribute

Merseyside Police have today shared a tribute from the family of a man who died in a road traffic collision in Liverpool City Centre on Monday 18 September.

Juan Pablo, aged 18 was tragically killed in a collision on Hatton Garden, near its junction with Dale Street after it was reported that he had been involved in a collision with a van.

In a tribute, his family said: “Our son Juan Pablo Hernández Lima, died in a road traffic collision on September 18. 

“He was only 18 years old and it was his first day at the University of Liverpool, where he was about to study urban planning. 

“Juan was born in Cuba, but also had Mexican and American nationality. He felt like a citizen of the world. Furthermore, he loved the UK.  He will be sadly missed by all his family.”

Detective Sergeant Kurt Timpson, Lead Investigating Officer for the MATRIX Serious Collision Investigation Unit said:

“My thoughts and those of my team remain with Juan’s family at this very sad time. 

“I have met with his mother and father following their arrival in the UK from Mexico and they continue to be supported by specially trained Police Officers.  

“They are grateful for the help of the local community, here in Liverpool, those who helped at the roadside and for the work of the emergency services.  

“An investigation is ongoing and I would ask that if you were in the area at the time, to please review your CCTV or dashcam in case the incident was captured. Every piece of information, no matter how small, could help us with our ongoing enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact our Matrix Serious Collision Investigation Unit on (0151) 777 5747, email, or DM @MerPolCC on Twitter quoting reference 23000898687.
