Family pays tribute to 'loving mother' killed after Bolton road fall
A woman who was hit by a car after she fell on a road was a "loving mother with a big heart", her family said.
Louise Wolstenholme, 52, fell backwards while crossing Bow Street in Bolton, Greater Manchester, at about 22:00 GMT on Sunday.
A bus and two cars avoided her, but she was hit by a Ford Focus which was later found abandoned in Back Bridge Street.
A 22-year-old man from Atherton is due in court later, charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
He has also been charged with failing to stop and failing to report a collision, driving without a licence or insurance, perverting the course of justice and driving while on drugs.
Paying tribute to the mother-of-two, Mrs Wolstenholme's family said: "She was a loving mother of Gaz and Brad.
"She was loved by all her family, was a loving godmother and was a faithful and loyal friend to many.
"Louise had a big heart as big as her personality and will be devastatingly missed."
