Tributes to 'star daughter' killed in road crash

Tributes have been paid to a nine-year-old girl killed in a car crash.

Olivia Edohasim died when the black Toyota Auris she was travelling in hit a brick wall in Altrincham, Greater Manchester.

A 45-year-old man and an 11-year-old girl - believed to be related to the little girl - are recovering in hospital two weeks after the May 7 incident.

In a statement released on Saturday through Greater Manchester Police (GMP), Olivia's family described her as a "little bundle of joy".

They said: "She brought smiles to all faces at all times and was the star daughter, sister, granddaughter and god daughter.

"She was exceptional at school and left a blaze of success in all that she engaged in and was never afraid to step out of her comfort zone. She grew up and was nurtured in her family's traditional Christian beliefs.

"She will be greatly missed by all of us but will remain in our thoughts and hearts forever."

The collision happened just after 10.50am in Manchester Road near to Stamford Road.

Greater Manchester Police said that on arrival they discovered a man and two children in the vehicle.

Olivia was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers carried out skid tests at the scene which is close to Trafford College.
