Heartfelt tributes to young woman who died in crash

Heartfelt tributes are flooding in for a young woman who lost her life in a crash in Cornwall.

20-year-old Bethany Rowett lost her life after two cars collided near St Columb.

Police, paramedics, firefighters and the air ambulance were scrambled to Winnards Perch on Sunday afternoon.

Tragically Bethany could not be saved.

Now a fundraising page has launched to raise £4,000 to give her 'the send off she deserves'.

Bethany worked at the Victoria Inn based in Roche. They posted on Facebook:

"Sadly, Beth was taken from her friends and family so tragically on Sunday.  She was one of our amazing team members here at the Victoria Inn. 

"A friend of the family has set up this page to help support the send off Beth deserves. We would love it if you could share away and donate if you can. 

"Fly high you loving, mad, marvel fan. We will miss you dearly."

The Go Fund Me page has already reached its target and donations are still pouring in. 

"Hello I've set up this page to help our close friends Deanna and Fenton at this very heart breaking time. 

"On Sunday 2nd February Deanna sadly lost her daughter Bethany in a car accident. 

"She leaves behind devasted family and friends and I wanted to set this page up to help support the family and give Bethany the send off she deserves.  Thank you."

Laura Higgins, Go Fund Me page

She added: "Even though we have now reached our target you can still make a donation. 

"Deanna and Fenton are overwhelmed and amazed by the donations raised so far and in such a short time. 

"They thank you all so much for the donations, support and messages they have received. 

"Deanna said its a comfort to know Bethany is loved by so many of you."

Officers have since confirmed that all other casualties in the crash were treated for minor injuries.

Two cars were caught in the collision that closed the B3274 between the A39 and the junction for St Eval until Sunday night.

If there are any witnesses and/or persons with dashcam footage of the collision, or the driving of either vehicle prior to the collision, they are requested to contact Devon and Cornwall Police on Tel: 101 with information quoting log number 0474 of 2nd February 2020, alternatively they can email 101@dcpolice.co.uk
