The family of a girl who died at the scene of a Salford collision has paid tribute to her.
Shortly before 10.40am yesterday, Saturday 10 November 2018, police were called to reports of a collision between a blue Vauxhall Corsa and a pedestrian on Monton Road in Monton.
The pedestrian – who has since been formally identified as 8-year-old Emily Connor from Chesterfield – was sadly pronounced dead at the scene, despite the best efforts of the emergency services.
A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He remains in custody for questioning.
Paying tribute to her, her family said: “To our Emily, the kindest person we ever knew.
“You will always be in our thoughts.
“We will talk about you every day.
“Rest in peace beautiful girl.”
