Request from family of girl killed in Inglewood

Request from family of girl killed in Inglewood

Central

The family of the 8-year-old girl killed in a collision with a truck in Inglewood yesterday afternoon have asked Police to request that media stop attempting to contact them.
 
The family has advised that they are not ready to speak to media at this stage, and that the ongoing attempts to contact them are causing additional distress at what is already a hugely traumatic time.  
 
Police therefore respectfully request that media give the family  the privacy and space they need as they deal with their loss.
 
The girl’s school has also advised that they do not wish to speak to media at this stage, as they are focused on supporting the girl’s classmates and fellow pupils.
