Daughter Betty was taken to intensive care at a hospital on the island before being flown to a hospital in Mallorca due to the severity of her injuries.

Social media posts revealed her fiance Nick Purt’s joy after the couple got engaged last Christmas.

He said: “So happy to be engaged to my love Sommer Amari. I can’t believe she said yes.”

Now Sommer’s social media pages are being inundated with emotional posts from her grieving friends and families.

In an emotional Facebook post, friend Colleen Wilson wrote: “Our hearts will be broken forever.

“Sending love and strength to Betty and Nick. Tonight a daughter falls asleep without her mother.”

Pernilla Parfit added: “More than heartbreaking. I deeply feel Sommer’s loss. She was such a sunshine and her sunny personality and energy was contagious.

“I will miss meeting her in town. Sending so much love to her family and friends and praying for little Betty.”

Another friend said: “I’m speechless and shocked. I can’t believe you left Summer Amari.

“So much life in you and you had so much more to offer to this world with your unbeatable personality, your fun, your big heart and your laugh that touched everyone.”

Lucie Hutton added: “No words can describe what a shock the world was in this morning when you weren’t there.

“Heaven has really won a party angel. Whenever I saw you gone, I knew there was no point in going home.”

A friend organized an online fundraiser for the dead woman’s daughter and partner, who had already raised more than her target.

A British well-wisher, along with other friends who hope to be able to help the family, donated a staggering £4,400 to the appeal.

A school friend who also donated money said: “You were a great force of nature at school and it’s clear you’ve continued to live your life the same way – love to all your family.”

The fundraiser provided an update: “Nick wasn’t there at the time. She had surgery on her skull and is currently recovering. She has some internal damage and a broken leg but we pray she is okay.

“Please think of her and pray for her. Sending lots of love to Nick and all the family and friends who are devastated by this news. We are all heartbroken.”

According to local reports, Sommer died after a 40-year-old Norwegian woman driving a rented Toyota lost control of her vehicle and hit Sommer’s vehicle head-on.

A Civil Guard source said they were awaiting drug and alcohol results from the Norwegian woman involved.

They continued: “It appears she caused the accident by losing control of her vehicle and crashing head-on into the Ford Focus being driven by the British woman.

“Overspeeding could be a factor, but the accident is still under investigation.”
