The family of a girl who died at the scene of a Salford collision at a pedestrian crossing has paid tribute to her.
Shortly before 10.40am yesterday, November 10th, police were called to reports of a collision between a blue Vauxhall Corsa and a pedestrian on Monton Road in Monton.
The pedestrian – who has since been formally identified as 8-year-old Emily Connor from Chesterfield – was sadly pronounced dead at the scene, despite the best efforts of the emergency services.
A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He remains in custody for questioning.
Paying tribute to her, her family said: “To our Emily, the kindest person we ever knew.
“You will always be in our thoughts.
“We will talk about you every day.
“Rest in peace beautiful girl.”.
Police are continuing to appeal to anyone who saw the blue Vauxhall Corsa in the area around the time of the collision or anyone with CCTV or dash-cam footage from Monton Road to please get in touch.
