Tribute paid to nine-month old fatal road crash victim
TRIBUTE has been paid to a nine-month old girl who died in a road crash.
Diamond Roberts, from Colchester, was killed when two cars collided on Clacton Road, Thorrington, on August 23.
Her mother, who was also taken to hospital with serious injuries after the crash, said: "My daughter was truly a shining star.
"We only had her for nine precious months but in this time she changed so many people’s lives with her happy smiley face.
"She had three precious sisters who adored her and would have done anything for her.
"Her gift of organ donation means she has saved other people’s lives and we will take comfort from the fact she will live on because of this.
"She will be missed by many, her mummy and sisters will never forget her."
Police are still investigating the collision, and a 61-year-old man from St Osyth, arrested at the time of the crash, remains on police bail until December 2 while inquiries continue.
Witnesses are asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101.
