Special tribute edition of the County Times

A special tribute edition of the County Times is on sale today (Thursday July 11).

Three young people have died in tragedies on roads in the Horsham district.

Shelby Gillespie-Boarer, 20, lost her life when the car she was driving was involved in a collision on the A24 last Thursday morning (July 4).

The Horsham Giggles Day Nursery worker and former Collyer’s College student had to be cut out of the Nissan Micra by firefighters who attended the scene near Kingsfold just before 7.30am.

A 49-year-old man from Horsham, driving the Ford Focus involved in the crash, was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton where he remained in a serious but stable condition towards the end of last week.

But Shelby was declared dead at the scene.

The road was closed between the Great Daux and Clark’s Green roundabouts while rescue, recovery and collision investigation work took place.

It was re-opened shortly before 12.30pm.

At around 8.10pm on Friday (July 5) emergency services were once again called to the scene of a fatal crash.

Two teenagers died after the silver Peugeot 306 they were travelling in left the road and collided with a tree on the A264 near Fulfords Hill at Slinfold.

They were William Richardson, 18, of Hayes Lane, Slinfold, who was driving, and his passenger Asa Caudill, 19, of Arun Road, Billingshurst.
