In a statement released by the police today, Nicola’s family said: “Obviously the family is devastated by this tragic collision.
“We would like to thank firstly the emergency services for their quick and determined efforts at the scene and secondly the people of Buntingford, especially the dog walker friends and dog rescuer group who helped to inform us of what happened.
“The group also tirelessly looked for Holly the dog, who finally turned up back at the house in the early hours of Saturday morning.
“Our thoughts also go out to the driver and passenger in the vehicle who must be emotionally affected by this collision.”
