Teenage girl killed by car in Cardiff has been named by police

Heol Trelai

SOUTH Wales Police have revealed that the teenage girl who died after being hit by a car in Cardiff is named Keely Morgan.

On Monday, May 1, police were called to Heol Trelai just after 9.30pm following reports of a collision between a black Vauxhall Astra and a pedestrian.

The 15-year-old girl from Caerau was declared dead at the scene and a 40-year-old man has since been arrested by South Wales Police on suspicion of causing death by driving without due care.

The collision closed the road in both directions for several hours and it has been reported that there was a large police and emergency service at the scene of the incident.

A South Wales Police spokesperson said: “Keely’s family is being supported by a Family Liaison Officer and they’ve asked to be allowed to come to terms with their grief in private. Our thoughts remain with Keely’s family at this time.”

South Wales Police are still investigating the incident and have asked for any witnesses to come forward, quoting reference *140268.

They also wish to speak to anyone who might have dash cam or CCTV footage of the collision of either Keely or the car prior to the accident.
