An 11-year-old girl stuck in car wreckage died moments after saving her three-year-old cousin’s life.
Iman Zainab Javed helped her cousin out of the wreckage right before a lorry crashed into her near Bamber Bridge in Lancashire. Iman’s father who was driving the VW Sharan with the 11-year-old and other family members in the car is in critical condition.
Iman from Rochdale, was in the backseat when the car collided with a Renault Clio, following which a lorry crashed into both cars. Three other family members suffered minor injuries due to the accident.
Iman’s family recalled her as a “beautiful, caring, fun-loving, inquisitive and sometimes cheeky young girl”, who “could play patiently for hours with her younger cousins but could also tell you the impact Brexit had on the pound.”
