A YOUNG woman is continuing to fight for her life at the intensive care unit of the Countess of Chester Hospital.
The 20-year-old, called “Hannah”, remains in a critical condition following the accident in Chester Road, near Aldford, in which her friend Carrie-ann Cannell, 23, was killed on Wednesday, October 22.
Office worker Carrie-ann, known as ‘Caz’, of Warwick Close, Neston, was the driver of a red Rover 25 MG hatchback when it was involved in a collision with a tree about 4am, while Hannah was the front seat passenger.
PC Rupert Venables of Cheshire police said: “She is still serious.There is no change really. We are obviously very concerned.”
Police want to hear from witnesses to the accident or anyone who saw Carrie-ann’s Rover and a blue Peugeot 306 being driven prior to the accident. An 18-year-old male has been arrested and released on bail.
PC Venables said: “If they have seen either one of these vehicles at the time or prior to the collision taking place we would like to speak to them.”
He said it was known the Rover had come from Butterbache Road in Huntington prior to the accident.
Carrie-ann’s father Trevor said in a statement issued by police: “Sadly missed but not forgotten always in our hearts. Lots of love and kisses.”
In an online tribute, her friend Toya said: “Hi Caz, only knew you for a short while but the time I got to spend with you was awesome! You still made an impact on my life. Everyone’s gona miss you. Never forgotten and forever in our thoughts.”
