Halnaker Crash: Family Pay Tribute To Teenage Victim

The family of a teenage girl who died in a car crash near Chichester have paid tribute to her.

Jasmine Elkasmi, from Bognor, was a passenger in a Vauxhall Corsa which came off the A285 at Halnaker and overturned at 6.45am on Saturday 21 September.

Two other 16-year-old girl passengers - who were also in the car - were seriously injured.
 
Jasmine's family said:

"Jazzy was a beautiful and intelligent girl, loved by so many. She had a real passion for living her life to the full. She was so caring and considerate of others, always making them laugh with her wonderful sense of humour.
 
"There was never a situation in which she could not find the funny side and even though she has left us far too early, she will carry on living within our hearts and memories.
 
"We are so proud and blessed to have had her as a part of our family. She will never be forgotten. She will always be a loving daughter, sister, auntie, granddaughter and friend.
 
"We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everyone for their kindness, support and their amazing tributes."

A 17-year-old boy arrested and questioned by Sussex Police on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving is on bail until 2 December.
