From the Ottawa Citizen:
Maddie Clement loved children and animals and would do anything to help a friend, says her uncle.
The 17-year-old died Sunday night after a car carrying four teens swerved off the road into a wooded area near Stittsville.
Another young woman, Michaela Martel, 18, also died in the crash. Two other teens who were in the car remain in hospital. It’s unclear what caused the car to swerve, and investigators continue to interview witnesses.
In an interview Tuesday, Clement’s uncle, Ben Halsall, said his niece had a “heart of gold.”
“She could have done anything if she had set her mind to it,” Halsall said. “She was a very sharp, beautiful, funny girl.”
