Family and friends gathered at Christ Church in Old Town for a service led by Rev Simon Stevenette to remember Shaya Rae, 18, who tragically died with her friend Kerry O’Leary-Staniford in a major road traffic accident on 18 May.
Shaya Rae was driving the grey Renault Clio which left the northbound A419,near the A420 White Hart junction and plunged down a bank into undergrowth about 20 metres from the road.
Three young men were injured in the accident, two of whom remain in a critical condition in hospital. Wiltshire Police have yet to explain the circumstances of the accident.
Shaya’s father asked guests to come come dressed to mourn Shaya’s death or to celebrate her life. The family said flowers were welcomed but askef preferred, donations can be made in Shaya’s memory to The Dogs Trust.
Kerry O’Leary-Staniford’s funeral is due to take place later this week.
