3:01pm Wednesday 19th September 2012 in News
TEN people were injured in the crash that killed two sisters from Whiteparish on Monday, police have said.
Tara Darlington, 23, and her 21-year-old sister Pippa died in the crash in Morocco while their 21-year-old friend Joshua Stump was seriously injured and remains in a critical condition in hospital.
A police spokesman said the vehicle in which the three were travelling was in collision with a Clio and then a 4x4 vehicle at about 5am.
Mr Stump was flown by air ambulance to Tenerife following the accident, where his parents are now at his side.
Tara and Pippa were both in the final year of their degree courses, with Tara hoping to become a journalist and her sister studying law.
Their parents, Patrick, 62 and Emma, 52, have paid tribute to “two beautiful, dynamic, energetic and fun-loving girls, who brought light and laughter to whoever met them”.
The couple, who have a 15-year-old son Oscar, said their family is completely devastated at the loss of both their daughters.
Wiltshire police is working closely with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to support the British families affected by the crash and the Moroccan authorities are carrying out an investigation.
The cause of the crash has not yet been confirmed.
