We’re appealing for information to assist our enquiries into a fatal road traffic collision in Fochriw on Sunday 24 July.
Officers attended a report of a collision, near Brook Row, at around 5.05am, which involved one car - a beige Skoda Octavio.
Paramedics from the Welsh Ambulance Service also attended and confirmed that a girl, 17, from the Mountain Ash area – who was a passenger in the car – had died at the scene.
She can now be named as Chloe Hayman and her family has released the following tribute to her:
“We can’t believe our beautiful loving daughter, kind caring sister to three little brothers has been taken so young.
“From the day Chloe was born, she was a determined and fiercely strong little girl who was beautiful inside and out.
“Chloe lived life to the full and brought so much joy and happiness to everyone’s lives.
“There was never a dull moment when Chloe was around.
“Chloe brought happiness and love wherever she went and was loved by everyone who met her.
“She will be missed so much by everyone who knew her and had the chance to meet her.
“Our lives will never be the same again without her.”
A 21-year-old man from Rhymney was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and driving while unfit through drink.
He was later released on conditional bail as enquiries continue and we’re asking anyone with information about the collision to contact us.
We’re asking for anyone who may have witnessed the collision, has CCTV or any motorists with dashcam footage in Bargoed, Deri and Fochriw between 4.30am and 5.10am to contact us.
You can call us on 101 or send us a direct message on Facebook or Twitter, quoting log reference 2200247542 with any details.
Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
