Family tribute to “Loving daughter, mother and grandmother” following fatal collision on M6


THE family of a woman who died following a fatal collision on the M6 motorway near Warrington during the early hours of yesterday (Tuesday) have paid tribute to her.

At around 12.15am on Tuesday 9 April, officers responded to the concerns for the safety of a woman on the M6 motorway between Junction 21 and Junction 21a northbound.

Officers attended the scene and found that 52-year-old Lisa Kelsall, of Norton, Stoke-on-Trent, had been struck by a white Citroen Relay van on the M62 slip road and was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident resulted in the full closure of the M6 Northbound near Warrington while emergency services attended at the scene and a police investigation took place.

Lisa’s family said:
“(A) Loving daughter, mother and grandmother to be, taken too soon. RIP Lisa Kelsall. Forever in our hearts.”

The driver of the van, a 47-year-old man from Preston, had failed to stop at the scene and was later arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He has since been released under investigation.

Officers are now appealing to anyone who may have dashcam footage, witnessed the fatal collision or saw Lisa’s car, a white Vauxhall Mokka, traveling northbound on the M6 from Staffordshire toward Cheshire prior to the fatal collision between 11.30pm on Monday 8 April and midnight of Tuesday 9 April, to get in touch.
Anyone with any information is urged report it to Cheshire Police quoting IML-1796179 via the Cheshire Police website or call 101.
Information can also be passed on to Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or report it via the Crimestoppers website.
