News

The family of a schoolgirl who died following a car crash have said she was the “best daughter anyone could ever have.”

Isabelle Boshell was left critically injured when she was struck by a car in Coventry last Thursday evening.

The 11-year-old was rushed to hospital but died yesterday morning, Birmingham Mail reported.

The day after her death Isabelle’s family issued a tribute to her.

“Isabelle was a loving daughter, granddaughter, great granddaughter and sister,” they wrote.

“She was loved by her friends, family and adored by her dog and cat whom she loved.

“She meant a lot to everyone and lived life to the full; she loved art, dancing, singing and learning.

“She was learning to play the guitar and was a unique individual who loved to set her own trends.

“The best daughter anyone could ever have. Please respect our family at this sad time and allow us the privacy to grieve.”

The 53-year-old driver of the car, a Toyota Verso, remained at the scene following the crash and required medical assistance, West Midlands Police said.

The force say he will be spoken to in due course.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the force’s serious collision investigation unit, said: “We’ve all been left numb by the sad death of Isabelle.

“She was just 11-years-old with her whole life in front of her, but this has been tragically taken away.

“To see the loss of someone so young is difficult for us as officers, but we know the pain is even greater for Isabelle’s family.

“We’ll be doing all we can to support them while they grieve, while also trying to establish what happened leading to the collision.

“We need your help so we can give answers to Isabelle’s family.”
