Rebecca touched lives of everyone who knew her
A 20-YEAR-OLD woman was killed after being thrown from her car in Over Peover, an inquest has heard.
Rebecca Hesketh, of Stocks Lane, Over Peover, died of multiple injuries when her Renault Clio was in collision with a Ford Transit van in Holmes Chapel Road on October 31 last year.
Michael Wallbank, deputy assistant coroner for Cheshire, recorded a verdict of death by misadventure at Macclesfield Town Hall.
The court heard it was unclear why Ms Hesketh lost control of her car, but the crash emphasised the importance of wearing a seatbelt.
A police spokesman said: “Rebecca leaves her mother, stepfather and two older sisters, who are all extremely saddened by her death."
The family did not wish to comment, but in a previous statement said: “Rebecca loved her family so much and was the best friend anyone could wish for.
“A friend for life who touched the lives of everyone who knew her for the better.
“Her mother was her best friend, her humour was infectious and her laugh unforgettable. Always loved, always missed.”
Her Facebook profile said Rebecca worked at Grasslands Nursery in Lower Peover, which is close to the scene of the crash.
The North West Air Ambulance was at the scene and landed on the road to treat casualties.
PC Tony Hayhurst, family liaison officer, said: “This collision has devastated Rebecca’s family and was responsible for prematurely and very tragically claiming her life.
“Rebecca was a popular and happy young lady who was at the beginning of her adult life.”
