Family pay tribute to "happy, loving" daughter killed in East Lancs horror crash

This Is Lancashire: Amy Hobson Amy Hobson

THE family of a young woman killed in a horror crash on the East Lancashire Road last week have paid tribute to the “most loving, caring and happiest daughter anyone could ever have.”

On Sunday June 22, just before 5pm, the car that 22-year-old Amy and her boyfriend, Horwich-born Aaron Jones, aged 19, were travelling in was crashed into by an Audi RS3 and an Audi S3 which were travelling eastbound on the East Lancs, near to the junction with Barton Road.

Mr Jones suffered multiple injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Miss Jones, a mother-of-one, also suffered serious injuries and died later in hospital.

In a statement her family said: “Amy was a wonderful mummy to her three-year-old son, never seen without a smile on her face no matter how she was feeling.

“Amy didn’t only leave her son behind she left behind her two sisters, her brother and her two nephews who she adored.

Amy’s brother Nathan said: "I’m constantly thinking about my gorgeous sister Amy, It will never be the same without her."

Lyndsay, Amy’s older sister, said: "I’ll miss the bickering between us and the cosy chats we had together."

Her younger sister, Courtney, added: “‘I’m gonna miss the funny chats we had and how she used to say ‘check them eyebrows’ to me.”

Her mother and father, Janet Hobson and Karl Riley said: “We sit there waiting for that one text or phone call to ask us if we will go and pick her up. 
"Amy was the most loving, caring and happiest daughter anyone could ever have."

“Amy will be sadly missed by all her family and friends. The family relationship we all had was a metal chain that no matter what happens, no one will break us. We will all miss you and love you loads."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741.

So tragic that a lovely young lady should be taken away like that, with the mindless thugs, I hope the thugs get life and I mean life, they have taken away two lives and left two families devastated. May Amy and Aaron RIP, God be with their families at this very sad time. If and when the MINDLESS thugs do get out of prison BAN THEM FOR LIFE FROM DRIVING. knowing THE LAW TO DAY THEY WILL MOST LIKELY GET A FINE AND A 6 MONTH BAN, THELAW IS A COMPLETE ARSE. MAKE THEM SUFFER FOR LIFE.

totally agree, two lives taken too soon. two families devastated and a three year old child left without his mother, so sad and all because two idiots thought it was fun to drive their toys dangerously on a public road knowingly putting lives at risk, these idiots have no regard for human lives whatsoever but this tragedy caused by them is something they will have to live with for the rest of their lives, such a beautiful girl too, RIP , heart goes out to their families whose lives will never be the same

Typical dumb comment, what's the cars make got to do with it, keep up the good work,

I have no doubt that at least one of the two charged with causing death by dangerous driving will be going to prison, if not both, for how long will be determined by the results of the investigation.

Very sad, when young people are involved in such a horrific incident.

It should be a lesson to all drivers that silly actions can change your life forever, or end it.

Heart goes out to the family's.

I had my comment removed from the original article reporting the news of this accident. I shall temper this comment by saying that it is a tragedy that these two young persons should lose their lives leaving behind devastated family members and friends.

The car in which the two victims were travelling in was not moving parallel to the central road markings when this accident occured. I would suggest it was moving from the third or second lane into the inside lane where the impact took place evidenced by the debris field in the pictures from the MEN. If you look on google earth a vehicle is pulling out of Barton Road onto the East Lancs road; it is positioned such that he has not turned into the first lane but into the second lane. If the driver of the corsa has done the same and then manoeuvred to move into the inside lane across the direction of travel of the fast approaching Audis that would explain why the front near side and left front have taken the brunt of the impact. I

The other Audi missed the corsa ( it was parked ahead of the debris field) and from the damage it sustained it looks like this vehicle hit something quite narrow and solid, lamppost maybe?

All of the above is opinion based on what I observed in the pictures. This accident needs to be examined thoroughly with the Audi driver's recall of events being regarded as true unless proven otherwise with due process of a court of law.

No one can make these driver's tell the truth if the truth is detrimental to the outcome of their trial,. However, I hope they find the strength to admit their role and degree of culpabilty.

Thanks for what has to be the most useless post of the week, your examination and speculation of the scene is not required, and could lead to misinterpretation leave it to the experts.

I will guarantee that the police will not consider anything outside laying blame at the feet of the two allegedly speeding drivers. This has the effect of not finding the true and complete causes of the accident and thus the families of the victims of the accident never discovering the exact circumstances of this tragic event.

I find it incredible that people comment about the culpability of persons involved in an incident without knowing the true facts. I just attempt to provide balance. I do agree that comments should be restricted as investigations continue. This sentiment does not apply to all restrictions of comments made by the BN based it seems on controversial or potentially divisive subjects

Nonsense. How can you make such assumptions. If the driver of the Corsa made a mistake in the control or handling of his vehicle he is a least partly to blame. I regularly drive over the 100Mph hour mark without incident, it is only the actions of other drivers moving lanes without signalling, observing and being aware of what is happening around them that causes accidents...

I have made no assumptions, your the one making them all. "If this" or "if that " is irrelevant. Play at accident investigation away from the public arena.

My message to primarily younger drivers , and my son is one of them, using the audi drivers as example with what we currently know, is that one minute of madness can lead to life changing or ending events for yourself. Exactly the same a one punch can be life changing for all involved.

You need taking off the road if you drive at 100mph what is the need to drive so fast? Surely the life of other people and your own life is more important than showing off in your fast car. You just look like an idiot it don't impress anyone. Such a sad story regardless of how its happened, just goes to show we are not invincible in a car and all need to pay attention when driving. least they are together in heaven my heart goes out to the family and friends
