POLICE today named the driver killed on Saturday when his car crashed in Victoria Street, Eye, on Saturday evening.
Graeme Creek, 41, of Magdalen Street, Eye, died in the crash, leaving his wife Judith and three-year-old daughter Annabella.
Mr Creek ran a welding company and the couple had lived in Eye since February this year when they moved to the town from Diss.
Mrs Creek said today: “Graeme was a very successful businessman, working in Mauritius, Jersey and Germany in the construction industry and was well known and highly thought of within his field.

“Some of his greatest and proudest achievements and involvements have been in the construction of the T5 Terminal at Heathrow airport, perhaps his proudest being involved in the Canary Wharf main tower, as well as the Queen's Racecourse Stand at Ascot, Kings Cross Station St Pancras and the Victoria tube extension.
“Graeme was at the peak of life and his career to date, being the Managing Director of his own Company and full of love for live, when he was tragically killed.”

The couple had been trying for 10 years to conceive a child and eventually decided to opt for IVF.
Amazingly, on the very day that Judith was to commence treatment, she discovered she was pregnant, and took great joy in giving him the fantastic news.
Mrs Creek said her husband was elated and almost immediately began calling the baby Annabella, long before she was born.
He was a keen follower of Formula One on TV and a very keen supporter of the rugby. Judith is hoping to play the rugby anthems at Graeme's funeral, which will hopefully be held in Diss between Christmas and New Year, with any donations from the funeral being passed to the Venture Scouts Trust.
