Family pay tribute to their beautiful little boy following tragic collision


The family of an 11-year-old boy who tragically died in a collision on the Alderley Edge Bypass on Monday, 16th September, have paid tribute to him.

Flynn Morrissey from Sandbach was a passenger in a silver Ford Focus travelling towards Wilmslow when a red Porsche Cayman travelling in the opposite direction collided with it, shortly after 8am. Sadly he died at the scene.

The family said: "Our beautiful little boy has fallen asleep. Flynn is always in our hearts. His mischievous energy and vibrancy will always live on."

Flynn was travelling to Wilmslow High School with his mother Nicky Morrissey and older brother Dylan when they collided head on in the Wilmslow bound lane with the Porsche Cayman, driven by a 28-year-old male.

Flynn had started at Wilmslow High School two weeks earlier, having previously attended Pownall Hall School where his mother Nicky Morrissey works.

Nicky, aged 44, and 15-year-old brother Dylan who was seated in the front of the car, were also taken to hospital to be treated for their injuries.

The driver of the Porsche received serious but non life threatening injuries and was taken to Wythenshawe Hospital for treatment.

Police are investigating the incident and are appealing for witnesses.

Sergeant Andy Dennison said: "We would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision who hasn′t yet spoken to police and also anyone who saw either of these vehicles travelling between Manchester and Alderley Edge around that time."

Anyone with information should contact Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 123 of 16 September 2013.
