The mother of a 14-year-old girl who was killed by a suspected drug driver has spoken out and paid a touching tribute to her daughter.
Olivia Kolek, 14, was a bright teenage girl who was fatally struck by a vehicle operated by a driver suspected of driving under the influence of drugs near a train station in Sandwell, England, while on her way to a party.
Due to the extent of her injuries, the paramedics could do nothing to save the teen and she was declared dead less than an hour after the tragic incident.
Following the young girl’s passing, Olivia’s heartbroken mother, Izabela Maziakowska, spoke out and expressed how her daughter was the “whole world” to her.
“She was my whole world. I cannot imagine life without her Girlanymore. I don’t know how I am going to get up and get on with my life. It is broken forever,” the postal worker told The Sun.
Recalling the last time she had seen her daughter, the grieving mom added: “She came into the Post Office where I was working to wish me a happy New Year, and I gave her some money and told her to enjoy herself and have fun. That was the last time I saw her. That was her last ever new year.”
As Izabela revealed, her daughter was on her way to a friend’s house where they were supposed to have a party when the incident happened.
“I think she was talking on her phone to a friend because one of her friends later said they had heard a big bang and for someone to call an ambulance,” the mother explained.
Following the teenager’s passing, the driver of the grey Mercedes that slammed into Olivia was arrested on suspicion of drug driving. As of this writing, the incident remains under investigation.
“We’ve started an investigation to understand what happened and the driver has been arrested as we believe he was driving while unfit through drugs,” Sergeant Julie Lyman confirmed.
“The investigation is clearly in the early stages and I would urge people not to speculate online about what happened. It’s really not helpful and can be very upsetting for the family.”
