Bootle vehicle crash: Skye Olivia Mitchell's family pays tribute

17 Juillet 2017

The family of a teenager who died in a crash in Cumbria have paid tribute to a "kind, caring girl" who "made the world a better place".

The 51-year-old, local, male, driver of the Ford Transit suffered serious injuries.

She was flown by air ambulance to Preston Royal Hospital.

In a heart-wrenching tribute, the family said: "Skye was a popular, kind, caring girl who raised money for various charities".

Skye Olivia Mitchell, 18, and Caitlin Lydia Huddlestone, 18, both from Millom, were pronounced dead at the scene of the incident on Friday night.

The third 18-year-old was a back-seat passenger in the Toyota Yaris when it collided with white Ford Transit van, driven by the man.

De niña, Mirzakhani soñaba con ser escritora, pero la fiebre de los números y las ecuaciones la atrapó en la universidad, para nunca más dejarla.

"She made the most of her 18 years, embracing every opportunity that came her way".

She was set to study Broadcast Journalism at Salford University but had already featured in the national press when she launched an anti-bullying campaign with a photograph of herself with the numerous taunts she had received written on her face.

Skye was Millom Carnival Queen in 2012 and followed this by winning the Junior Miss South Lakes title.

"Skye made the world a better place and Skye's world was a wonderful world to be in".

Cumbria Police, which is appealing for witnesses to the collision, said specially trained officers were supporting both families.

The road was closed for six hours for the vehicles to be examined and then removed, Cumbria Police said.
