Woman in fatal M6 collision named

The family of an Oldbury woman killed in a collision on the M6 on Monday (27 July) has today been named as Victoria Kavanagh as her family pay tribute to their ‘loving mother’. 

We were called shortly before 9am following the collision between two lorries and a Citroen C1, between junction 9 for Wednesbury and junction 10 for Walsall.

Ms Kavanagh, aged 41, suffered critical injuries and was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. 

The drivers of both lorries stopped at the scene and are assisting officers in their investigation.

Ms Kavanagh’s family have today paid tribute to her saying: "Victoria was a loving mother and daughter and a friend to everyone she met.  

“She graduated 18 months ago in children’s nursing and got her dream job shortly after working with safeguarding children.  

“She had just been accepted to study for her Masters in Public Health and had so much to look forward to.  

“She will leave behind a massive hole in our lives and will be forever missed."

DC Damian Gibson from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "A woman has tragically lost her life and we are doing everything to piece together the moments leading to her death. 

"We are continuing to appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision or with dashcam footage to contact us."
