Tributes are flowing for 19-year-old Banksia Park woman Ivy-Rose Hughes after she was killed in a horror two-car crash in McLaren Vale overnight.
The talented state netball player was travelling home from a day in the vineyards with friends when the Mazda she was travelling in collided with another vehicle at an intersection on Main and Binney roads just after 10pm on Wednesday.
Ms Hughes was killed on impact and the seven others from both cars were rushed to hospital with varying levels of injury. Two remain in a serious condition, three are stable and one has been discharged.
Ricciardo makes bold prediction for new team
Daniel Ricciardo has made a bold declaration as he zeroes in on his first Formula 1 world championship with McLaren.The Western Australian's new racing team, McLaren, last night showed off their new car for the 2021 season, in which Ricciardo will make his McLaren debut at the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 29.
Netballsaid this afternoon the "entire netball community is devastated to lose such an amazing young woman. Forever a star. Forever a Red. Forever in our hearts."
Locals say the intersection is a well known black spot and signage leading up to the crossing is poor.
"It's not the first accident at that junction, there are lots of accidents that happen there so something needs to be done about it," nearby resident Hazel Parker said.
Another local, Darren Ross, called for better markers on the road.
Local MP Leon Bignell agreed a guardrail would be helpful, but "I'm not sure if it would have made a difference with last night's crash".
