'You’re now an angel': Tributes flow for Jada
JADA Norford was a "beautiful girl" whose life was taken far too soon, according to her friends.
Tributes flowed for the 14-year-old Dalby girl who died in hospital on New Year's Eve after succumbing to injuries sustained in an horrific car crash last month.
Many people posted messages for Jada on social media, describing her as a gentle soul loved by everyone she met.
"You will forever be in my heart. I love you and I'm going to miss you so much," her cousin Mitella Norford posted on Facebook.
"You're such a beautiful girl and now an angel. I just can't understand how someone so full of life could just have it torn from them," friend Raquel Brown added.
Jada sustained critical and life-threatening injuries when the car she was in veered off Dalby-Kogan Rd on December 19, colliding with two guideposts and running down a steep embankment.
She was one of four passengers in the car and the most seriously-injured.
The vehicle, driven by a Kingaroy man, 41, rolled at least 50m before stopping in a dry creek bed where passers-by discovered the incident.
Several people expressed their heartache for Jada's family on social media.
"Thinking of you all. My heart goes out to you and your family," Kaytee Becky Harvey wrote.
"RIP Jada Abbey-Rose Norford. We are all going to miss you and our hearts go out to Jada's family," Glen Anderson said.
The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the incident.
