Talented teen netball star killed in McLaren Vale crash
Tributes are flowing for 19-year-old Banksia Park woman Ivy-Rose Hughes after she was killed in a horror two-car crash in McLaren Vale overnight.
The talented state netball player was travelling home from a day in the vineyards with friends when the Mazda she was travelling in collided with another vehicle at an intersection on Main and Binney roads just after 10pm on Wednesday.
Ms Hughes was killed on impact and the seven others from both cars were rushed to hospital with varying levels of injury. Two remain in a serious condition, three are stable and one has been discharged.
Netball South Australia said this afternoon the “entire netball community is devastated to lose such an amazing young woman. Forever a star. Forever a Red. Forever in our hearts.”
Locals say the intersection is a well known black spot and signage leading up to the crossing is poor.
“It’s not the first accident at that junction, there are lots of accidents that happen there so something needs to be done about it,” nearby resident Hazel Parker said.
