Tributes for road death teenager

Emma Adele Morris
Emma Morris was 'a very special person', her family said

The family of an 18-year-old who died following a collision with a car have spoken of their "caring young girl" who was loved by everyone.

Emma Adele Morris, from Bridgend, was injured in the collision in Tremains Road, Bridgend, on Friday, and later died at the Princess of Wales Hospital.

Ms Morris's family said it was their second loss this year, after they lost her mother to cancer nine months ago.

A 21-year-old man arrested after the incident has been released on bail.

In a statement, the family said: "Emma Adele Morris, the daughter of Kenneth Morris and sister of Sarah and Richard Morris, was loved by everyone who knew her and will be sorely missed.

"Emma was a caring young girl who lost her mum tragically nine months ago to cancer.

"Emma was a very special person."

The incident involved a silver Renault Clio and happened close to the Honda Garage at about 2240 BST on Friday.

The road was closed for two hours while South Wales Police investigated.

Police said inquiries were continuing, and want to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or who stopped to provide assistance.

They would also like to speak to anyone who may have seen the vehicle being driven prior to the collision and who have not yet given their details.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the South Wales Police on 01656 869332, or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
