Sue Caithness, the victim family’s neighbour, said the child’s mother witnessed the crash.

The woman had just started a construction job and the infant and her father were on their way to meet her when it happened, she said.

“She was walking home from work and they had come down to meet her. She saw her little girl, Ocean, and her partner across the road, and she waved, and then she saw the accident,” Caithness said.

“She felt responsible, because if she hadn’t had this new job they wouldn’t have been coming down to meet her.”
