The teenage girl who died in a crash has been named as 25 others were injured in the smash involving a school bus carrying students in Birmingham. The 14-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene after the school minibus collided with a lorry on Kingsbury Road in Castle Vale, Birmingham this morning.
She has been named locally as Holly Brown who had an identical twin Emma who went to the same school in Staffordshire Holly dreamed of becoming a ballet dancer and three years ago beat 250 other youngsters to win a starring role in Sleeping Beauty at Wolverhampton’s Grand Theatre.
Parents Sari and Martin Brown have been left devastated by their daughter’s death, according to neighbours. One elderly resident, who did not want to be named, said: “Sari and Martin are crushed by it. They were out on the street earlier, hugging and crying. It’s going to be very hard for Emma to take especially. I can’t imagine what it must be like losing a sister.”
