TOUCHING family tributes have been paid to a 29-year-old woman killed in a rush-hour crash on the Wessex Way in Bournemouth.

Monika Kunda died of multiple injuries after losing control of her black Yamaha motorbike on Tuesday August 14.

An inquest into her death heard that Mrs Kunda, who lived in Studland Road, Bournemouth, died at the scene of the crash on the Richmond Hill sliproad on the eastbound carriageway at 8.35am.

Dorset coroner Rachael Griffin was told that Mrs Kunda, a bank worker who was born in Poland, fell after losing control. She died at the scene of the accident.

Police inquiries have revealed there were no suspicious circumstances and no third party involvement in her death.

In a Facebook post her cousin, Zaneta Pike, said: “With a broken heart, along with my family, unfortunately we must inform you of the death of Monika Kunda.

“Words can’t explain how shocked we are and how sorry we are. My cousin was hilarious, an extremely smart and honest woman.

“I could always count on her. I can’t believe I will never hear her loud laugh again and see her huge smile on her face.

“I promise we’ll never forget you. Liam will know a lot of stories about his crazy aunt. I miss you so much. Rest in peace.”

The eastbound A338 Wessex Way was closed for seven hours between the Bournemouth West roundabout and St Paul’s roundabout following the fatal crash.

The westbound carriageway was closed for the first three hours to allow for an air ambulance to land and for collision investigators to carry out their inquiries.

In total, six police cars, one police van, an armed response vehicle, two paramedic cars, an ambulance and a fire engine were also called to the scene.

The Bournemouth inquest was adjourned until May 3 next year to allow for further inquiries to be carried out.
