HEARTFELT tributes have been paid by work collagues and friends of a young woman who died in a car accident on Tuesday morning.Leanne Gray, of Chapels Court, Stilton, died when her burgundy Peugeot 406 crashed at around 7.30am on the B660 between Holme and the A1.
The 25-year-old had been driving to work when she is thought to have lost control of her car, and despite the efforts of emergency services, she died of injuries suffered in the crash.
Yesterday a special group on social networking website Facebook was set up, and within 24 hours 80 people had already joined, with more than 20 messages and photographs posted..
Some of the messages posted on the site were from Leanne's sister, Samantha Gray, who wrote: "My big sis x i love you so much and miss you x why did you have to leave us x you will always be a star to me x keep shinning x MISSING YOU X BE GOOD X."
While Sarah Myles wrote: "I will miss ur fab smile and warm heart. u will be the brightest star in the sky, sparkling as always. my thoughts are with the family. miss u babe xx."
Today staff at Sureterm – the insurance provider based in Godmanchester, near Huntingdon, where she worked, said they were 'devastated' after hearing the news.
A statement on the company's website said: "Leanne Gray was involved in a fatal car accident this morning which has left us devastated.
"Leanne had worked with the Sureterm team for several years within the Administration Department and would have been 26 on Sunday."
And managing director at Sureterm, Andy Wood added: "Leanne was a beautiful person both inside and out.
"She had many friends and work colleagues who enjoyed her company and her sound advice as a friend.
"She was a dedicated employee who would often enjoy working for the company at outside events where her fantastic smile won over many an audience. She will be greatly missed by everyone here and we extend our heartfelt condolences and thoughts today to her family and Nathan (her boyfriend) for their sad loss."
Police are still appealing for witnesses following the accident, and are particularly keen to speak to the driver of a van, which is believed to have been driving along the road at the time.
The van was a white, large sized, panel van towing an empty car transporter trailer.
