The family of a ten-year-old girl, killed in a car crash on the Isle of Wight, are paying tribute to her.
10 year old Evey Rose Staley was involved in a collision on Friday night along the main road between Newport and Cowes.
She was taken to Southampton General Hospital but sadly died the following day.
Her mum and dad remain in hospital today (Monday) in a critical condition.
As previously reported, their Subaru Justy was involved in a collision with a Ford Puma at around 8.30pm.
The driver of the Ford Puma, a 30-year-old Sandown man, was arrested at the scene.
Evey's family has paid tribute.
They've released the following statement:
"Evey was a popular and strong-willed young girl. She had a happy, bubbly nature and an infectious smile. Her loveable and cheeky personality made her adored by everyone she met."
"Evey’s quirky sense of humour kept us all laughing and her passion for baking meant we were never short of homemade treats.
Evey, being the young lady she was, loved shopping, fashion and more importantly chocolate!
She had had many interests which included history (The Tudors, Victorians and the Romans) and netball where she was working hard to make this year’s school team.
Evey particularly loved crime investigation programmes which inspired her to want to become a police officer.
This tragedy should never have happened to our beautiful Evey Rose who at ten years old still had so much more to give.
The entire family are deeply shocked and hurt at this devastating time. We would like to thank everyone in the Intensive Care Unit at Southampton General Hospital for all they did for Evey and to the Intensive Care Unit at St Mary’s Hospital for all they continue to do for Evey’s mum and dad, Neal and Penny. They have been incredible.
We would also like to thank our dear friends, neighbours and other members of the public for their amazing support.
Goodnight darling, sleep tight. xx"
Staff at Ryde School where Evey studied have also payed tribute to the young girl.
