Tribute to festival crash victim

Dominique Williams
Dominique Williams was a "beautiful and happy" woman

A 20-year-old woman who was killed in a car crash on her way to a dance music festival was a "beautiful and happy" person, her family said.

Dominique Williams was on her way to Creamfields in Cheshire when she and her friend, Nicola Edgar, were killed.

Miss Williams, of Maghull, Merseyside, and Miss Edgar, 21, from Darlington, died when the car they were in crashed into a lamppost and flipped over.

Two other women, both 19, were also hurt in the crash.

On Tuesday, Miss Williams' mother, Lesley, issued a family statement on behalf of Dominique's father, Philip, and brothers, Liam and Daniel.

Serious injuries

"Dominique was my best friend and I cannot believe that she will not walk through the front door again," she said.

"She was a beautiful, happy and fun person, a daughter any parent would be proud of.

"For the past 20 years living with her has been a privilege and I will never be able to accept my loss, neither will the rest of the family."

Two other women, both aged 19 and from Ormskirk and Maghull, are still being treated at Whiston Hospital.

Both were cut from the wreckage and suffered serious injuries.
