Heartbroken family pay tribute to 'real character' Josie after teen killed in tragic crash

The heartbroken family of an 18-year-old woman who died after a crash in Reaseheath, have described her as a "real character" who was "loved by all who knew her".

Josie Cartwright, from Staffordshire, was driving a red Toyota Aygo which was involved in a crash with a black Renault Clio. The tragic incident occurred at around 2.10pm on Sunday, June 2, on the A51, Wettenhall Road, Reaseheath, near Nantwich.

Sadly, despite best efforts of those involved, Josie died in hospital. Her family are being supported by specialist officers.

In a tribute to Josie, her family said: “Josie May Cartwright will be remembered as a real character, full of joy, laughter, strength, and a little mischief.

“She was and is, loved by all who knew her.”

A 33-year-old woman from Crewe was arrested at the scene. She has since been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Officers are continuing to appeal for anyone with information or dashcam footage from around the time of the collision to come forward.

In particular, officers are keen to speak to the driver of a dark saloon car which was travelling towards Nantwich who stopped to help at the time of the collision.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is urged to contact Cheshire Police via the website quoting IML 1838088 or call 101.
