TRIBUTES have been made for a popular Spanish teacher at Ormiston Park Academy who died in a horror crash between a car and a lorry in Great Warley, Brentwood.
Raul Canet Espi, 36, was the driver of a Renault Scenic that was involved in a collision with a MAN truck on the B186 Warley Street, Great Warley, shortly after 6.50am on Wednesday February 24.
He suffered serious injuries and was taken to Royal London Hospital where he sadly died on Thursday, March 3.
Mr Canet, who lived in Southend, had taught Spanish at Ormiston Park Academy in Aveley since September last year.
