Lancashire: First picture of girl, 3, killed in motorway horror crash
The family of a three-year-old girl who was killed in a motorway horror crash say words will ‘never express the heartache’ of her sudden passing.
Faye Dawson died when the car she was traveling in collided with a Porsche Boxster on the M6 near Leyland in Lancashire on Saturday.
The 79-year-old driver of the Porsche sports car passed away at the scene, while Faye’s mum, who was with her in a Vauxhall Meriva vehicle, suffered serious injuries.
Another unnamed man who was traveling with Faye also received serious injuries.
Following her tragic death, the three-year-old’s family released a touching tribute, saying they struggled to see a ‘future’ without their ‘clever little girl’, from Wallasey, Merseyside.
And they said though she had been taken too soon, they knew “angels” would be looking after her, adding they were ‘so glad’ to have been part of her life.
They said: ‘Our beautiful Faye Grace, words will never express the heartache we are all going through since you were tragically taken from us.
‘We can’t see the future without you, it has left a massive hole in our lives.
‘Everyone says how precious their daughter/granddaughter is but you were an exception, you were such a clever little girl who was very funny and had us all laughing all the time.
‘You were so loving and caring and above all very loved by everyone who met you. You’re now at rest with your great nanny, great granddad and Uncle Jimmy.
‘Words won’t justify how much we are all going to miss you and how much we all love you.
‘Your mummy is being so brave and she will continue to make you proud.
‘You were too little to be taken away from us, but we know the angels will look after you and they’re lucky to have you dancing in the sky with them.
‘We are all so heartbroken that you were taken far too young but we are so glad that we got to have you for the time we did.
‘RIP baby girl, we are all missing you and will carry on forever. All our love.’
The crash took place on the Southbound carriage of the M6, between junctions 28 and 29.
And police have called for witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage of the incident to come forward and contact them.
