A TALENTED Ipswich art student killed in a car crash was today described as “a star”.
Lucy Simmons, 17, of Eye Road, Rishangles, was killed when the car she was driving left the road and hit a tree yesterday morning.
She had been on her way to classes at Northgate High School and was just a short distance from her home.

Lucy was in her second year at the school, studying art, psychology and religious studies A-levels, having joined the sixth form from Hartismere High School.
Mr Watts said: “She was a very talented art student and was predicted very good grades in all her subjects and an A in art - she was known as a star of the art department.
