Authorities in the United Kingdom say they have identified the juvenile female killed when a speeding wrong-way driver struck her early Sunday morning.
According to the U.K. Sun, 15-year-old Robyn Fryar was crossing a street in Scotland when the fatal collision occurred.
She is believed to have been hit by a Volkswagen Golf traveling at a high rate of speed down the same Paisley road at about 2 a.m.
Though Fryar was taken to an area hospital from the scene, she was pronounced dead shortly after her arrival, as reported by the U.K. Mirror.
Greater Glasgow Police Detective Inspector Allan Kelly said the teen was with four of her friends at the time of the collision.
“The driver initially got out of the car but then went back in and drove off toward Gleniffer Rd, Paisley,” he reportedly added.
Near the scene of the crash and online, locals expressed grief over the loss.
“Taken far too soon, loveliest girl ever, rest easy Robyn you will be missed greatly by everyone,” friend Ben Morrison wrote in a social media tribute.
Police continue to investigate the incident and have reportedly arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with the crash.
