The family of a woman who died in a car crash on the A449 in Worcestershire have paid tribute to their "angel".

Samantha Jennings, 26, from Kingswinford in the Black Country, died at the scene in Cookley in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Ms Jennings, had two boys, aged eight and nine, and worked as a care assistant for people with disabilities.

In a tribute released by West Mercia Police her family said: "Sam was a caring person, an angel."

The family has received many messages of condolence which they said were "a huge comfort".

In the tribute they said: "She was a much-loved mother, daughter, sister, and granddaughter, and we are broken hearted."

Sam was a front-seat passenger in a black Vauxhall Astra which left the A449 and hit a tree, near the Island Pool pub, at about 01:00 GMT.

Two men who were also in the car continue to receive treatment for their injuries.

The 22-year-old driver was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham with two broken legs and a broken pelvis.

The rear-seat passenger, a 24-year-old man, was taken to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital with minor injuries.

West Mercia Police has appealed for witnesses.
