The Surrey Police said the officers were called to Church Street at around 2.15 pm on April 22, to report an altercation between a group of men. A white BMW 1 Series was reportedly hit two men in the group, killing one and seriously injuring another.
A second man, who is also in his 40s, sustained serious injuries and is recovering in hospital.
Paying tribute to Tester, his family has spoken of his “humor and generosity”. His brother said: “Tik was a much-loved son, husband, father, brother, uncle and friend to so many. Those who knew him will talk of his humor, generosity, willingness to help and his cheeky grin.
This tragedy has absolutely rocked the family who has been devastated by Tik’s death. The hurt and sadness we’ve felt over the past few days simply cannot be fully quantified and something no one should ever experience. The consequences and ripples of Tik’s death will have a lasting effect on so many lives. No mother should expect to outlive their son. Over the past few days, the family has been inundated with condolences, love, and such warmth and well wishes from friends across the country – a testament to the love and affection people have for Tik and his family. This has been of great comfort.”
He added: “Tik is a figure widely known and loved within the scootering community, which have all been rocked by the news of their friend’s tragic death. This affection has so far raised over £11,000 from nearly 500 donations from the scooterists worldwide in a GoFundMe, and £22,000 from JustGiving pages.
Tester’s daughter said: “Dad taught me how to live. Our favorite thing was just to laugh because even in our darkest time we did it together.

Tester was said to be building scaffolding in the High Street when he got into a row with the owner of a BMW, after which Mir got in his car and repeatedly run over Tik and the other man following the “altercation”. The second man was airlifted to hospital but is expected to recover.
Of the horror incident, Tik’s postman, who delivered post to him and his family, said: “It was just a stupid dispute.”
