Family pays tribute to singer who lost her life in M65 collision

A talented singer who lost her life in a collision on the M65 last week, has been named as Victoria Goodwin (32).

Police were called to reports of an incident between three vehicles on the Eastbound carriageway between junctions two and three, at 7pm on Wednesday.

A Peugeot 208 overtook a Mercedes Atego HGV before losing control and colliding with the barrier. It then re-entered the carriageway and collided with a number of vehicles.

Victoria (pictured) died in hospital after suffering serious injuries in the collision.

Her family have paid tribute, saying she was a “shining light in all our lives”.

They added: “It is a great sadness we have to announce that our loving daughter Victoria Goodwin passed away on March 14 due to injuries sustained in a car accident.

“She was a shining light in all our lives , a talented singer and musician and will be sadly missed by all her family and friends.”

The driver of the Peugeot, a man in his 40s, and a child passenger suffered less serious injuries. The occupants of the other vehicles were uninjured.

Sgt Phil Baxendale, of the Specialist Operations Road Policing Unit, said: “Very sadly this collision has now resulted in Victoria losing her life and I would continue to appeal for any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police, or anyone with dashcam footage, to come forward and speak to us.”

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting log 1217 of March 13 or email [email protected]
