Maldon and Burnham Standard: Tributes paid to Bonnie Hiller following A12 collision Tributes paid to Bonnie Hiller following A12 collision

TRIBUTES have been paid to the glamorous former Miss Colchester who had a heart of gold.

Bonnie Hiller died after her grey Mercedes convertible collided with a bridge on the London Road underpass in Kelvedon on Saturday evening.

The 27-year-old of Tiptree has been crowned as Miss Colchester and Miss East Anglia in 2009.

The former Thurstable pupil went on to pursue a career in modelling and worked with various boutiques in the Essex area.

Her dad Paul said: “She was a wonderful girl and a wonderful daughter who was very close to her mum and a joy to be with."

See today's Gazette for the full tributes. 

Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision to call 101.

What a shame. Maybe , like mopeds/motorbikes...
there should be a limit to the power under a bonnet , a certain age can drive ? Makes sense to me.....and then theres the carbon footprint.....youngs
ters are due to do more mileage. But again , a sad loss of life...and so young . Tragic

Glad to learn she accepted Jesus as Saviour.

A terrible loss for the family


however this is not the place to spout your ill informed views on moped and motorbikes..... the only restriction on these vehicles power output is by the age of the rider and their license status . I would suggest that before you post again you do some homework

my condolences to the family concerned and aplogies for having to correct the post by Something2say ... which he / she clearly hasn't
