TRIBUTES to a “beautiful” young Merseyside woman have been laid close to where she died in a road traffic accident on Saturday morning.
Dominique Williams, 20, from Maghull, died after the car in which she was travelling with friends to the Creamfields music festival flipped over and hit a lamppost.
Nicola Edgar, 21, from Darlington, was also killed while two other female passengers were seriously hurt in the smash.
Floral tributes to Dominique now line the sliproad to the Knowsley Expressway close to Everton FC’s training ground in Halewood.
Alongside a dozen bunches of flowers, teddies and photographs are words of shock and disbelief.
A Facebook site has been set up in memory of the fun loving girl known as “Dom” and there are already close to 300 messages left by 1,500 people.
Vicky Jones, of the Liverpool John Moores University network, said: “She was one of the funniest people I’ve ever met, she always made you laugh – never seen anyone more energetic.
“She was beautiful and it’s such tragic news.”
Other messages pay tribute to her talent as a performer while hundreds offer support to her family.
A 19-year-old woman also from Maghull and named locally as Sophie Vicary, and a 19 year-old girl from Ormskirk, had to be released from the car by firefighters.
They were both conscious as the crews battled to free them and are now believed to be in a serious condition at Whiston Hospital.
The dark blue Renault Clio the group were travelling in flipped on to its roof and had careered into a lamppost before becoming so badly damaged firefighters needed to cut the passengers free.
No other cars were involved.
Pauline Fielding, who set up the North West branch of RoadPeace after her 18-year-old son, Andrew, died in 1994, has organised a special remembrance – which will also commemorate Dominique – at 2pm today at the Rankin Steps outside Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.
The event will be attended by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Mike Storey, and Merseyside’s chief constable, Bernard Hogan-Howe.
Witnesses to the crash are asked to call traffic police on 0151 777 5771.
