THE family of a Spanish woman who died in last week’s collision on the A41 in Prees Heath have described her as ‘kind and beautifully crazy’.

The 27-year-old who died in a collision on the A41 near Prees Heath last week has been named as Laura Carrillo, who has lived in the UK for six years.

Her family have paid tribute to her, saying that she was a "much-loved daughter" and that the "world was a better place for her being in it".


A tribute, released through West Mercia Police, said: “On Thursday, October 12 our beautiful girl, Laura passed away, at 27 years old, in a tragic traffic accident.

“Laura lit up every single room she entered. She was fiery, energetic, adventurous, kind and beautifully crazy.

“She loved to travel and explore, and we are grateful that she saw as much of the world as she did before she passed. We know the world is a better place because of her influence.

“She was a much-loved daughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend. Words cannot express how much we will miss her and how forever changed our lives are now."

The family also asked police to issue a verse, in Spanish, in tribute to Laura:

"Bendita tu herencia
impregnada en el aire,
respirar nunca volverá a ser tan humano.
Bendita tu huella.
Gloria bendita.”

Roughly translated, the verse is a series of blessings.

Laura had been riding as a passenger on a motorbike that was involved in a collision with two other vehicles. 

Anyone with dashcam footage of the incident is urged to contact West Mercia Police on 101.
