Keely Morgan, a young woman who died after being struck by a car, had her life goals “cruelly taken away,” according to her family.
In Heol Trelai, Caerau, Cardiff, on Monday around 21:30 BST, Keely, 15, lost her life after being struck by a car. A 40-year-old man was detained on suspicion of causing a fatality while driving recklessly.
Keely’s teachers referred to her as a “exceptional student” who loved school, while her parents commended her for having a “beautiful smile” that lit up the space. Sian Morgan, Keely’s mother, and Liam Coulthard, her stepfather, issued a joint statement saying, “As a family, we are just devastated at the sudden loss of Keely.” Our hearts have been broken.
“Nobody ever said anything bad about her since she was intelligent and polite. She had impacted so many lives in such a brief period of time here, and she had so many ambitions that have now been cruelly abandoned. The family thanked those who attempted to help at the scene and said they were “overwhelmed” by the generosity and support shown to them.
Martin Hulland, the principal of Cardiff West Community High School, where Keely was a student, said everyone was “absolutely devastated.” Keely was a superb student who enjoyed school, the speaker continued. She was a great buddy to many students and was very into playing. She will be sorely missed by everyone. The teen’s death was under investigation, according to South Wales Police.
