Tributes paid to ‘kindest and most selfless’ woman who died following Llangollen crash

North Wales news and information

A woman involved in a crash in Llangollen has died, police have confirmed.

The collision happened shortly after 7am on Tuesday 30 January on Abbey Road in the town, and involved a green tractor and a white Kia Rio.

It’s now been reported by North Wales Police that Sarah Elizabeth Grimshaw, aged 39, from the Chirk area, died in hospital on Tuesday 27 February.

Her family have paid tribute to a woman “whose infectious warmth made the world a better place for all she came into contact.”

Sarah’s family said: “It was an honour to share our lives with Sarah. She had the unique ability to walk into a room and brighten up everyone’s day with boundless energy and sheer craziness.

“She had a heart of gold flowing with endless love for all people and animals.

“Sarah was the kindest, most selfless wife, daughter, sister, Brownie Leader and animal lover, whose infectious warmth made the world a better place for all she came into contact.

“Sarah will be dearly missed by so many whose lives will be forever darker without her.”

Mrs Grimshaw, who was driving the Kia Rio, was initially taken to hospital in Stoke with serious injuries.

She was later transferred to the Wrexham Maelor Hospital but died last week.

Sergeant Stephen Richards from North Wales Police’s Roads Crime Unit is appealing for information.

He said: “Our deepest condolences go out to Mrs Grimshaw’s family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.

“We are asking anybody who was in the Llangollen area on the morning of Tuesday 30 January and who may have witnessed the collision, or who may have dash cam footage to contact us as soon as possible.

“Our enquiries are underway and anybody with information that could assist with the ongoing investigation should contact officers at the Roads Crime Unit quoting reference number 24000131722.”
