A 'DEVASTATED' family have paid tribute to their 'sensible' and 'kind' daughter, 15, who was killed after being hit by a car on Monday.
Keely Morgan tragically lost her life in a collision on Heol Trelai, Caerau in Cardiff at around 9.30pm on May 1.
South Wales Police confirmed a 40-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
In a statement, Keely's mum, Sian Morgan and stepdad Liam Coulthard said: “As a family we are just devastated at the sudden loss of Keely. Our hearts are broken, and we never imagined anything like this would ever happen to us.
"She was sensible, kind and not one person ever had a bad word to say about her.
"In such a short time in this world, she had touched so many people and she had so many plans that have now been so cruelly taken away."
