Families pay tribute to teenagers who died in collision in Bishopston

The two people who died in the road traffic collision which happened on Tuesday May 31st at Northway Garage, Bishopston, Swansea have been named and their families have paid tribute to them.

Kaitlyn Davies, 19, was from Blaenymaes, Swansea. Her family has paid tribute to her saying: “Kaitlyn our bright, bubbly, kind, caring girl, your smile was brighter than the sun and lit up every room you entered.

“To say we are devastated doesn’t come close, you were so loved by everyone you met. We were there for your entire life and now the memories we made will have to last us the rest of ours.

We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of love we have been shown but now ask that our privacy be respected.”

Ben Rogers, 19, was from Bonymaen, Swansea. His family has paid tribute to him, saying: “Ben was an amazing, clever, chatty and witty young man. He always had smile on his face which always lit up the room when he entered.

“He was such a loving caring person who had time to talk to anyone who’d listen which explains why he had so many friends.

“He would always offer support to anyone who needed it. It would be fair to say he lived life flat out and squeezed every ounce of enjoyment out of it that was possible.

“The loss of Ben has had a profound effect on us all and if we’re honest, we are all still numb with shock as the gravity of what has happened hasn’t truly sunk in.

“Ben was our son, and he was deeply loved by all the family and will be missed beyond any words could express. A piece of all our hearts is broken but we will do our best to keep his memory alive forever.

“We would like to thank everyone for all their kind words of love and support which are all gratefully received.

“Finally, we’d like to thank all the emergency services and members of public at scene who did their very best under what must have been difficult circumstances.”
