The family of a woman who died following a collision in Middleton has paid tribute to her.
Shortly before 11.55pm on Friday 9 November 2018, police were called to reports of a collision between a black Peugeot 3008 and two pedestrians on Rochdale Road in Middleton.
The pedestrians, a 21-year-old woman and her 48-year-old father were rushed to hospital for treatment.
The woman, who has since been formally identified as Charlotte Salway from Middleton, sadly died from her injuries despite the best efforts of emergency services.
Her father was discharged from hospital the following day after suffering from a broken wrist and severe bruising.
A 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and drink driving. He has been released under investigation.
Paying tribute to her, Charlie’s family said: “Charlie was always happy and smiling and brought joy to everyone she met.
“She loved music from thrash metal to musicals; The Greatest Showman was her favourite film.
“She also loved animals and conservation, even adopting a tiger and an elephant through charities. She loved to visit Chester Zoo to see the animals.
“She was both the most feminine ‘girly’ girl and biggest tomboy at the same time. She was affectionately known to the family as ‘the ever changing Charlie’ because she would regularly change her hair colour and clothing styles.
“She was unique and not afraid of being who she was. She was an eclectic mix of everything and was loved by so many.
“We would also like to thank all our family, friends and well-wishers for their support at this difficult time.”
