The devastated and heartbroken family of a woman who died in collision on the M62 have paid an emotional tribute to her.
On Sunday 24 January 2016, at around 5.40am, a grey Audi S3 and a lorry travelling westbound on the M62 between the Eccles interchange and junction 11 were involved in a collision.
The collision caused the lorry to overturn and significant road closures were put in place.
A 25-year-old woman who was travelling in the Audi sadly died and she has been formally identified as Joetta Shumba.
She leaves behind her son, Zane. A man she was travelling with remains in a serious condition in hospital.
In a touching tribute, Joetta’s family said: “On Sunday we lost a very important part of our family.
“Joetta was our everything. She loved her son more than life itself. We are completely devastated and heartbroken by our loss. We don’t know how we are going to carry on.
“No words can describe the life that she lived and the legacy that she will leave in our hearts. We very much appreciate everybody’s kind words and tributes but would now like some privacy to grieve our loss”.
