Police said a Porsche Boxster was involved in an accident that killed a three-year-old girl who was traveling in the wrong direction.
Faye Dawson, from Wallasey, died when her mother’s Vauxhall Meriva was involved in the crash of a Porsche Boxster driven by a 79-year-old man who also died on the southern end of the M6 near Leyland on Saturday 19 November. A man who was in the car was seriously injured in the accident.
Lancashire Police believe Porsche was going the wrong way on the motorway, having joined at Junction 28, and detectives are resuming witnesses and dashcam footage. Faye’s mother gave a heartfelt tribute on Thursday, November 24th.

The salutation said: “Oh beautiful Fay Grace, words will never express the heartache we all go through since you were so tragically taken from us.
We can’t see the future without you, it left a huge hole in our lives. Everyone says how precious their daughter/granddaughter is but you were an exception, you were such a smart little girl who was so funny and made us all laugh all the time.
“You were so loving and caring and above all so much loved by everyone who met you. You are now at ease with a great nanny, your great-grandfather and Uncle Jimmy.”
“Words will not justify how much we will all miss you and how much we love you all. Your mummy is so brave and will continue to make you proud.”
“You were too small to be kept away from us, but we know the angels will take care of you and they are lucky that you are dancing with them in heaven. We are all so sad that you are now so small but we are so glad we could give you the time we did.” BABY RIP, We all miss you and will miss you forever. All our love.”
A Lancashire Police spokesperson said: “Investigating officers suspect that the Porsche Boxster was traveling in the wrong direction on the road when the collision occurred, having entered the motorway at Junction 28 via the south slip road.
“If anyone who witnessed the collision hasn’t come forward yet, we’re asking them to do so. Also, if any drivers have dashcam footage from the highway around the time of the collision, we’re imploring them to contact us.”
Sergeant Craig Booth, of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This collision has left both families grieving in a way most of us will never understand.
“On behalf of Lancashire Police and the investigation team, I would like them to know our thoughts are with all of them, as they are supported by specially trained officers as a result of this shocking incident.
“I also feel like I need to mention all the emergency services who attended who are also trying to deal with what happened.”
Anyone with information is urged to call 101, citing record 1102 dated November 19, 2022.
