‘Lovely little girl’ killed while riding her bike
An EIGHT-YEAR-OLD girl who died after colliding with a bus while riding her bike has been described as a “lovely little girl” who was popular with classmates.
Amber Cameron died at the scene of the accident at about 11am on Tuesday on Barclay Avenue in Elderslie, Renfrewshire.
She was riding her bike when the west-bound bus collided with her, Strathclyde Police said.
Susan Carlton, headteacher of Wallace Primary School in Elderslie, where Amber was a pupil, said: “This has been a very sad day for the school. Amber was a lovely little girl who loved learning and thrived in all school activities, particularly arts, which she especially liked.
“She was very popular with classmates and will be sadly missed. We have been helping pupils talk and react in their own way and further support and counselling is available if required.
“The thoughts of the whole school community are with Amber’s family.”
Neighbours and friends also left flowers, cuddly toys and messages at the scene.
Police said a report would be submitted to the procurator-fiscal and any witnesses to the accident were asked to contact officers.
