Pelin Kaya was identified as the woman who was killed Wednesday morning after being hit by a car driven by Jeremie Camilleri
Kaya was hit by the black BMW driven by Camilleri as she walked on a Testaferrata Street pavement at 1am. She unfortunately died at Mater Dei Hospital after being rushed there by an ambulance.
Times of Malta revealed that her family had been informed of her death and that relatives are expected to fly to Malta later on Wednesday.
Kaya worked as an interior designer at a local high-end furniture store, described as a ‘wonderful person.’ Kaya lived in Gżira, close to the crash site, and had been living in Malta for over a year.
Police told Times of Malta that there seems to be no reason to assume that Kaya and Camilleri knew each other. Eyewitnesses also claimed that the perpetrator threw stones at the victim and then assaulted other passers-by and police.
