‘We were simply all best friends’ says family of road crash victim

The family of a young woman from St Leonards who died in a road traffic collision have paid a heartfelt tribute to her.

Claudia-Rose Moor, 23, was driving her Ford Ka when it was involved in a two-car collision on the A21 at Mountfield, Roberstbridge, on Saturday, April 26th. She was airlifted to the Royal Sussex County Hospital where she died from the injuries she sustained in the crash. 

Just two days later Police said they had arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with the incident on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, failing to stop and failing to report a road traffic collision.

Now Claudia’s family has paid tribute to the: “…beautiful and bright individual who gave so much more to others.” 

In a statement issued through Sussex Police Claudia’s family says: “She was always so generous and selfless and would always put others before herself.”

They explain too that Claudia was an organ donor and some of her organs have been donated to help others: “…which is amazing and we are so incredibly proud,” they say. 

Claudia-Rose Moor: “We have so many treasured memories of our lives together,” her family said this week.

“Her sense of humour was hilariously funny and she had such an infectious laugh. 

“She had a gentle, compassionate nature and was fanatical about music and watching live bands.”

Claudia, a team leader at the Co-operative, was a former pupil at William Parker Sixth Form where she studied art. 

“She loved all of the arts – theatre and film – but in particular, drama. She was always the performer and more than comfortable to take centre stage. 

“Outside of performing she had a job at the local Co-op where she was a favourite with customers and a valued branch member.

 “We would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone for the comforting words we have received in remembrance of Claudia. We have truly been overwhelmed by the love shown from friends and colleagues who knew her,” the statement says. 

Claudia leaves behind her mum, step-dad, an older and younger sister and a younger brother.

The family concluded: “We would like to thank all of the emergency service and the air ambulance, in particular the specialist nurses and doctors at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, for their efforts to save Claudia. 

“We have so many treasured memories of our lives together, we were simply all best friends, and we cannot imaging our lives without her.”
