Parents pay tribute to ‘loving daughter and wonderful mummy’ killed in Salford three-car crash

The parents of a young mum who died a Salford horror car crash have paid tribute to the most ‘loving, caring and happiest daughter anyone could ever have’.

Amy Hobson, 22, was in the passenger seat with her partner, Aaron Tulsa Jones, a 19-year-old from Horwich, when their Vauxhall Corsa collided with an two Audis on East Lancashire Road, Swinton, just before last Sunday.

Amy was rushed to hospital but died as a result of her injuries, leaving behind her three-year-old son. Aaron was pronounced dead at the scene.

Today, her parents, Janet Hobson and Karl Riley, have released a heart-felt statement: “Amy was a wonderful mummy to her son, never seen without a smile on her face no matter how she was feeling.

“We sit there waiting for that one text or phone call to ask us if we will go and pick her up. She was the most loving caring and happiest daughter anyone could ever have.”

Amy’s two sisters, brother and nephews who she ‘adored’, also expressed their grief following the death of their ‘gorgeous’ sister.

Older sister Lyndsay expressed how she’ll most miss the ‘bickering’ but also the ‘cosy chats’ she and her sister shared.

Her younger sister Courtney said: “I’m gonna miss the funny chats we had and how she used to say ‘check them eyebrows’ to me.”

Nathan, Amy’s brother, added: “It will never be the same without her.”

Carl David Wood, 27, of St James Street, Farnworth, Bolton, has been charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and has been remanded in custody.

He will appear before Manchester Crown Court, Crown Square, on July 8. 

A second man, Steven James Ward, 25, of South Avenue, Swinton, is charged with two counts of dangerous driving.

Amy’s mum and dad said: “Amy will be sadly missed by all her family and friends. The family relationships we all had was a metal chain that no matter what happens, no one will break us. We will all miss you and love you loads.

“You’ll be never forgotten, our loss, God’s gain.”
