The family of Emma Holloway from Badwell Ash, who died following a road traffic collision on Wednesday evening has issued the following tribute:

Emma Holloway, age 19 was a much-loved daughter, sister, granddaughter, great granddaughter, niece and cousin. Emma was brought up in Bury, attending both Hardwick Primary and Middle schools, and King Edward VI, where she was a gifted pupil on all levels. Emma was a very keen sportswoman and excelled in many sports. Her first love was always football where she played for many teams from the age of 7. She played for Moreton Hall, Newmarket, Bury Town, Ipswich, and Sudbury and represented her county by playing for Suffolk. Latterly she was also keen to coach junior sides.

Emma was talented in all she put her mind to and was having a gap year before considering University to study sport. Emma was young lady with a massive heart who always had time for other people. Emma had so much to live for, enjoying an active social life with many friends and looking forward to her plans for the future.

This has left a devastating hole in the hearts of all the lives of those she had touched. Emma acquired the nickname ‘The Legend’ whilst growing up and she truly is.

Emma was killed in a collision on the A134 at Cockfield near Bury St Edmunds just before 10pm on Wednesday evening, when the Vauxhall Corsa she was driving was involved in a collision with a Peugeot 407.

The male driver of the Peugeot was taken to West Suffolk Hospital with chest and arm injuries.

Police are investigating what happened and are asking anyone who may have been travelling along the A134 to come forward if they saw either vehicle before the collision.
