Tributes paid to ‘adored’ woman after fatal A358 collision

Jade Coles

The family of a woman who died last week in a fatal collision in Somerset say she ‘touched the hearts’ of all who knew her.

Jade Coles, from Chard, tragically died in a collision involving the Vauxhall Corsa she was driving and a lorry on the A358 in Ashill, near Ilminster.

Paying tribute to the 22-year-old, Jade’s family said: “Jade was always such a loving and caring girl; even if she did drive us mad at times, this is the last thing she ever deserved. She was brutally honest but would never see anybody go without.

“She touched the hearts of so many people; adored by family, friends, work colleagues and all the children and families she cared for. 

“Jade, we love you so so much our angel. You will forever be with us. Maybe not in person but always in our hearts.”

An investigation into the fatal collision, that happened at about 8.25am on Tuesday 10 May, is ongoing.

Jade’s family added: “We would like to send out a huge thank you to all the emergency services that helped her when she needed it the most, but sadly her injuries were too bad to save her.”
