Mary Wilmore was one of two women who died following the collision in Ettingshall on November 25.

Her family have now paid tribute to the 82-year-old, as the police investigation into the fatal incident involving five vehicles on Millfields Road continues.

Mary's family said: “Mary was the greatest mother, grandmother and great-grandmother any family could ever have wanted.

"Family was everything to her and she was always kind and generous. We all miss her terribly.

"The loss we all feel is huge and things will never be the same. Please respect our family at this sad time to allow us to grieve in private," the statement continued

A 76-year-old woman also died in the incident which happened at around 3.35pm.

Of the further three people who were taken to hospital, two have now been discharged.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "Our thoughts remain with the families who have been affected by this awful collision.

"It remains vital that we fully establish exactly what happened with the five vehicles involved so I'd ask again for anyone who's not spoken to us, but has information to get in touch.

"We'd also ask that people who were driving in the area at the time take a look at their dashcam as it may contain important footage to assist the investigation.”

A police statement added: "We can be contacted via Live Chat at 8am – midnight or call 101 anytime. Information can also be sent to quoting log 2754 of 25 Nov."
