TRIBUTES have been paid to a teenager who died after a crash in Longbridge on Thursday (March 10).

Amy McKenzie was the front seat passenger in a Vauxhall Corsa which was involved in the collision with a Vauxhall Vivaro van at around 6am on Groveley Lane.

The 18-year-old was taken to hospital but despite the best efforts of doctors she died on Friday afternoon.

Amy’s family have today paid tribute to her.

“Amy was full of life. She was a happy, bubbly girl who always lived life to the fullest and always had a smile on her face.

“She was loved by everyone and all of her family are broken hearted – she was taken so young.”

Sgt Paul Hughes, from West Midlands Police’s Collision Investigation Unit, urged anyone who witnessed what happened to come forward.

He said: “This is a tragic and devastating time for the family and officers from our dedicated family liaison officers continue to support them.

“Our investigation team is continuing to piece together exactly what happened and what led to the collision.”

Anyone with any information should call West Midlands Police’s Collision Investigation Unit on 101.
