Family Tribute To Emily Connor

Friday 24th May 2019

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.”
