The family of a 17-year-old who died after a crash near Ruthin have paid tribute to her, saying she was “loved by all who knew her”.

Olivia Alkir died following a two-car collision near Ruthin on Thursday evening.

She was a passenger in a red Ford Fiesta which collided with a black C Class Mercedes on the B5105 between Efenechtyd and Ruthin.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Following her death, Olivia’s family said she was a “fun loving, wise, ambitious individual. She was loved by all who knew her.”

They added she had recently been appointed Deputy Head Girl at Ysgol Brynhyfryd – “a post she would have undoubtedly excelled in”.

They said she had a “uniquely unbreakable bond” with all her family and “although her life has been cut tragically short, she filled her seventeen years with a life-time of achievements.”

Olivia was beautiful inside and out and the world was a better place because of her.
