Hundreds of friends and family have gathered to remember a 15-year-old girl who was killed in a horror bus stop crash .
Witnesses described seeing ‘absolute carnage’ after a BMW mounted a pavement in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, leaving Katelyn Dawson severely injured.
The Year 11 pupil later died of her injuries while three other victims, a girl aged 17, a woman aged 47 and the driver of the BMW, aged 51, were also hurt.
Hundreds of people gathered for a vigil for the Shelley College pupil last night at the spot where the crash happened.
It was organised by her friend Eunique Dickenson who has also been raising money to pay for Katelyn’s funeral, reports the Huddersfield Examiner .
The fund has raised more than £1,200 in just a few hours.
Many of the crowd released balloons and held candles.
A friend of Katelyn’s, Siana Clavin, said She was the most bubbly and fun person I’ve ever met. Katelyn was so gorgeous and it’s so sad she’s not here any more. She was just so grateful for everything she had in life.
Diane Ryan lives nearby and attended as her grandson Bradley Eastwood knew Katelyn.
She said It’s just so tragic .. it’s just too sad for a young girl to leave home to go to school and this to happen. I can’t imagine how her parents must be feeling.
The initial target was £1,000 but by last night it was very close to doubling that.
Eunique Dickensen, who organised the vigil, said I am truly heartbroken as are many of the people who are here. Katelyn was precious to many of us and she will always be missed. She was very outgoing – just the best person.
Police are investigating the cause of the crash who may have seen the grey BMW before the collision to come forward.
