A WEEK BEFORE realizing her dream of starting her own dancing school, a teenager was killed in a traffic accident.
According to her mother, Hallie Mae Colquhoun is the “most beautiful girl inside and out, with the kindest heart.”
On September 12, 2023, just after 5.30 p.m., Hallie, 18, tragically perished in a two-vehicle collision close to her house in Corby, Northamptonshire.
The adolescent collided with a white VW Tiguan SE that was moving in the opposing way while operating her black Fiat 500.
This week, she was supposed to launch her Ignite Dance Space at the town’s Priors Hall Park Community Center.
Her mother Emma paid a moving tribute, saying: “Last night, when our lovely baby girl was taken away from us, our world shattered apart.
“I never thought in a million years I would be writing something like this and did not want to put it on social media.
“But as most of you know, Hallie was due to open her dance schoolweek and we feel this is the best way to get the message out to the parents and students.”
The heartbroken mum described the late student as an “amazing” daughter with a “kind” heart.
She added: “The most beautiful, girl inside and out, with the kindest heart ever. She cares about everyone and family is everything to her.
“She’s passionate, driven, determined and focused.
“She had such big plans for Ignite Dance Space and put her heart and soul into creating something special.
“She is everything to us, a truly beautiful and special girl. We are so privileged to have had you for 18 years.
“I just wish that we could wake up from this nightmare and have you back in our arms.”
Her parents shared their “devastation” over Hallie’s death and to be “proud and fortunate” of their little girl.
“We are the proudest parents and so fortunate that you’re. We are all devastated beyond words and will never come to terms with losing you.
“I would always tell Hallie that I love her more than life. Well yesterday our lives ended. No parent should have to go through this. Ourare completely broken,” the tribute wrote.
In her honor, a GoFundMe campaign has been started to fund £6,000 for funeral expenses.
Police in Northants are pleading with any witnesses or owners of dash cam footage to come forward.
