More tributes paid to Hethersett car crash victims

More tributes have been paid to the victims of a fatal car crash in Hethersett.

Sara Page, 29, of Park Close, Hethersett, was killed when the blue Volvo 850 she was driving was involved in a collision with a silver Peugeot 206 on the B1172 Norwich Road, near the junction with Station Lane, last Saturday evening.

Front seat passenger Trevor Bunn, 30, of Muriel Kenny Court, Hethersett, also died, while rear seat passenger Ollie Wood suffered serious injuries. The female driver of the Peugeot suffered slight injuries.

Miss Page's funeral service will take place at Colney burial ground on Thursday at 11am, followed by a private burial in Hethersett. Donations towards the funeral can be made to Mr Hammond or Miss Page's family members. Her family have asked that those who attend do not wear dark colours.

While more flowers and messages continue to be left at the site of the crash, friends and family of the victims have contacted the Evening News to make their own personal tributes.

Miss Page, mother to Tehya, 11, and Jazmine, four, had hopes of marrying her fiance Wayne Hammond next year.

Mr Hammond's mother Sandra Wyatt said her future daughter-in-law was 'one in a million'.

'Her smile would light up the darkest corner and her personality shone through. She was one in a million and she touched our lives forever. I know my son Wayne had met the kindest, warmest and most beautiful girl. It's such a shame their time together was cut short,' she said.

Former work colleague Hannah Petch added: 'I first met Sara when she started work at Just Add Water with me back in 2003. We became close and remained friends for several years. Shock does not cover how I feel - you never think this will happen to anyone you know. She was a feisty girl and a good mother to Tehya who adored her completely.'

Mr Bunn, a father-of-three, had been a successful cycle speedway rider and played football for Wymondham and Hethersett as a teenager. He had hopes of becoming a chef or a bricklayer.

His cousin Charley and her son Morgan said: 'Trevor was a good, kind person who thought highly of his brother and lovingly of his children. He shall be missed so much.'

Friends Mark and Toni added: 'I would like to say sleep tight Trev. No1 - will never forget u m8. Take care up there in heaven won't ya. See ya again one day.'

Inquests into the deaths of Miss Page and Mr Bunn have been opened and adjourned.
