After a vehicle mounted the pavement in front of a takeout, a student was killed in a hit-and-run accident.
Rebecca Steer, 22, passed away immediately after a Volvo hit her and another pedestrian yesterday morning.
Officers subsequently said that a 28-year-old male had been detained in Oswestry, Shropshire, on suspicion of murder and an attempted murder.
The criminal justice student, who was thought to be in her third year of study at Liverpool University, was from Llanymynech, a settlement on the Welsh border, and she had two siblings.
The former barmaid and travel agent, who had worked abroad in Turkey, was described as “always happy” by a local, who added: “It’s such a sad thing.” The incident has startled everyone in the community.
On Saturday night, she was at a rural bar before going out with some pals to Oswestry. Nobody can believe Becky was simply a beautiful, vivacious girl.
The personnel at the Pant convenience shop where Miss Steer had previously worked described her as “a great soul.”
The Daily Mail quoted shop manager Sophie Owen as saying, “[Becky] will do anything for anybody.” It seems unimaginable that she is no longer with us since she was the life of the party.
We are all in utter disbelief since she was wonderfully beautiful and had her whole life ahead of her. For her family and friends, my heart aches. Nobody ought to experience [that].
A other worker said, “She was such a wonderful girl.” It’s a complete waste. I feel bad for her mother. I have no idea how you will start to manage.
Her family praised Miss Steer as “kind, talented, and kind-hearted” last night. They said, “We are all profoundly crushed by the death of our darling child, Rebecca,” in a statement sent via the police.
Everyone adored her because she always had a grin and a chuckle. Her many friends and family members will miss her dearly. She was everyone’s ideal choice for a daughter, sister, grandchild, and friend. Peace be with you, lovely girl.
Yesterday morning, West Mercia Police released a statement announcing the arrest.
According to the police, a vehicle climbed the curb outside the Grill Out restaurant around 2.50 in the morning and hit Miss Steer and another pedestrian.
They were rushed to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, where Miss Steer, who graduated from the university after attending Llanfyllin School in Powys, was quickly declared dead. The second pedestrian is seeking treated after sustaining “severe injuries.”
Police were looking for a “gold/champagne colored Volvo,” according to the police, in relation to the incident, which was captured on CCTV.
Yesterday afternoon, a pale gold S60 Volvo sedan was discovered in a town residential cul-de-sac. Around 1pm, specialized forensic police surrounded the automobile and began to examine it.
“Our sympathies are with the family of the lady who passed away as a consequence of this awful tragedy,” Detective Inspector Dave Bettison said. I would also implores any passengers who may have been in the car—if there were any—to come forward.
I want to thank the community members who worked so hard at the scene, he said.
He urged anybody having video of the event on their phone, dash cam, or CCTV to come forward.»22-year-old student dies in hit-and-run«
