The ten-year-old girl who died in yesterday’s accident is Elisa Buhagiar who attended St Joseph school, Blata l-Bajda.
In the accident, Elisa’s father lost control of his vehicle in Triq il-Prajjiet between Manikata and Popeye’s Village, and as a result the car flipped over and was dragged several metres.
In the car there was another girl, aged 8, who is a friend of Elisa’s.
The school is in mourning and in fact the end of year school concert in which Elisa was expected to take part in has been cancelled.
