Family pay tribute to young mum killed in a road traffic collision

MERSEYSIDE Police were called to College Road, Crosby, following reports of a fatal road traffic collision, on Friday 28 October 2016, involving a Toyota Auris and a pedestrian.  The pedestrian was 33 year old Lauren Johnson. She was taken to Hospital following the collision, but was sadly confirmed as deceased a short time later. We are informed that the driver of the car is helping Police with enquiries.

Lauren's family have issued the following statement as a tribute to the Mum of 2. They said:- "Never was there a time when Lauren put her own thoughts and feelings ahead of those of others. Such selflessness is a rarity these days; that coupled with absolute beauty, humour, and an unrivalled set of principles and morals meant Lauren truly was 1 in a million. A daughter, a sister, a best friend to many, a Wife and a Mother to 2 beautiful young children; Lauren was the picture of happiness. Full of dreams, hopes and aspirations, not just for herself, but for her children too. In an instant Lauren has had her dreams and future snatched away from her, and the glue of this family has been forever broken. But, her absolute determination, selflessness and inspiration means that her 2 children have had the most wonderful start to life, loved in a way only a Mother could love. We will strive as a family to make sure Laurens memory and strength of character lives on in everything we do. Our beautiful children will know all about their Mummy`s smile, success in every aspect of life, and will know just how this truly special Mother embraced all the challenges she faced in a head on and positive manner. Most importantly, Lauren's children will always know how happy they made her. Our family will never get over this, but the kindness of the local community is appreciated and the kind words and actions are both humbling and overwhelming. We ask that during this time we are left to grieve in private and figure out our new life."

Constable Kurt Timpson from the Merseyside Police Roads Policing Unit said the investigation into this tragic collision is still in its early stages and they have appealed to anyone who witnessed it, or has any information and has not yet spoken to them, to contact MSOC Roads Policing on:- 0151 777 5747 or Merseyside Police on:- 101. You can also call Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111 with any information on this incident. Constable Kurt Timpson has reiterated that whilst the family are very grateful for the support shown by the local community, they do ask for privacy at this time.
