The girl who died in a traffic accident early on Sunday morning has been identified as 17-year-old Kacey Sciberras.

The woman, aged 17, was riding as a passenger in a Chevrolet Aveo whose driver lost control and crashed into a wall and a pole at 3am in Tumas Chetcuti Street, which is part of the Central Link project.

She died on site.  Another 17-year-old woman, from Attard, and the driver, a 20-year-old man from St Paul's Bay, were both taken to hospital and are suffering from grievous injuries.

Condolences for Sciberras were quick to spread on social media.

The Institute of Tourism Studies, where Sciberras was a student as well as a member of the student council, was among those to offer condolences.

“Our deepest condolences go out to Kacey's family and friends during this difficult time. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers,” the institute said.

“May we honour Kacey's memory by cherishing the impact she made on those around her and embracing unity and compassion. She will forever hold a special place in our hearts,” it added.

The Committee of feast of Mary Queen of the Martyrs in St Paul’s Bay – Sciberras’ home town – where she was an active member of the youth committee also offered their condolences.

They also appealed for prayers for another individual who is part of the same committee who is receiving treatment at the Intensive Care Unit, following the same accident.
