Tributes have been paid to a schoolboy described as the “most beautiful” teenager after he tragically died in a car crash a week before his childhood dream was fulfilled.
Hallie Mae Colquhoun, 18, was on the verge of opening her own dance studio when she died in a fatal collision with an oncoming car shortly after 5:30 p.m. on September 12.
The accident happened on Watford Road, West Haddon, in Corby, Northamptonshire – just moments from the teenager’s home.
After her death, Hallie’s mother, Emma Colquhoun, said the family was “completely broken” and described how “her world collapsed” following the news.
The enthusiastic dancer was about to open her dance studio Ignite Dance Space and was driving a black Fiat 500 when an oncoming white VW Tiguan SE collided with her vehicle.
A few weeks ago, the teenager wrote on Instagram: “It’s official! Ignite Dance Space opens at Priors Hall Park Community Center on September 20th 2023❤️.”
“I have waited so long to share this news with everyone. For the last 6 months I have been planning everything related to Ignite. Ignite Dance Space is an environment where anyone, regardless of ability, can come and learn to dance.”

Ms Colquhoun described her daughter as “the most beautiful girl inside and out” and took to a GoFundMe page set up in her daughter’s memory to describe the family’s loss and pay an emotional tribute.
The page, which aims to raise £6,000, aims to “supplement anything that could be used for Hallie’s farewell, legacy or memorial”.
Noting her daughter’s big plans to open her own dance studio, Ms Colquhoun wrote: “Last night our world collapsed when our beautiful little girl was taken away from us.”
She described herself as “devastated beyond words” and added that she was one of the “proudest parents” to pursue her daughter’s dreams.

“I never thought in a million years I would write something like this, nor did I want to post it on social media, but as most of you know, Hallie was due to open her dance school next week and we think this is the one best way to pass the message on to parents and students.
“I feel like I owe it to Hallie to tell you all how amazing she is. The most beautiful girl inside and out, with the kindest heart ever.”
“She cares about everyone and family is everything to her. She is passionate, motivated, determined and focused.”
“She had such big plans for Ignite Dance Space and put her heart and soul into creating something special.”
“She is everything to us, a really beautiful and special girl. We are so privileged to have you for 18 years.”
“I just wish we could wake up from this nightmare and have you in our arms again. We are the proudest parents and so happy that you are our baby girl.”

“We are all devastated beyond words and will never come to terms with losing you.” I would always tell Hallie that I love her more than life. Well, yesterday our lives ended.
“No parent should have to go through this. Our hearts are completely broken.”
In a statement, police said: “Shortly after 5.30pm on Tuesday September 12, a collision occurred between the driver of a black FIAT 500 and the driver of a white VW Tiguan SE who was traveling in the opposite direction.”
“Unfortunately the driver of the FIAT, a young woman from Corby, died at the scene of the accident.

“The passenger in the Tiguan suffered serious injuries and was taken to Coventry and Warwickshire University Hospitals.
“Officers would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or has dashcam footage of the collision.”
“Anyone with information is asked to email [email protected] or call the Drivewatch hotline on 0800 174615 or Northamptonshire Police on 101.”
