The family of a teenager who died when the car she was travelling in hit a deer have paid tribute to "a true star in their lives".

Eighteen-year-old Daniela Ruggiero, from Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire, was killed in the crash on the A10 yesterday.

Today her family said: “Daniela was a very special and much loved daughter, sister, grand-daughter, niece, cousin and friend.

“She will be greatly missed by everyone who was touched by her greatness. She was born to dance, and is now dancing with the angels. A true star in our lives.”

A 17-year-old, who was in the same car as Daniela, also died as a result of the crash which took place on the northbound carriageway between Ware and the A120 Puckeridge exit.

The girls' Citroen C1 hit a deer and another car then collided with them.

Daniela's family is keen to trace a woman, called Diane, who was driving a Mercedes and helped the teenager's mother and auntie yesterday.
