The family of a five-year-old girl who died in a collision in Stoke-on-Trent recently have paid tribute to her.
Police were called at 5.52pm on Friday 1 April to Waterside Drive, Blurton, following reports of a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian.
Officers attended and the five-year-old girl was found in cardiac arrest following a collision involving a grey Volkswagen Touran.
Sadly, Minaal Salam, aged five, was pronounced dead by paramedics a short time later.
In a statement, Minaal's family said: "Minaal was a loving, kind and passionate soul.
"She was adventurous; she loved travelling, eating out and shopping.
"She was fun-loving and full of life.
"We have beautiful memories together.
"The void she has left in our lives is getting wider with each passing day; we are so heartbroken, shattered and lost.
"She was our sunshine.
“We cannot believe we are separated from her.”
A 63-year old man from the Stoke-on-Trent area, arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
Officers continue to appeal for information and ask anyone who witnessed the collision or who may have relevant dashcam footage to get in touch.
