A 21-year-old Queensland woman has tragically died after being struck by a car while hitchhiking in Scotland.
“It is absolutely heartbreaking. We are all utterly devastated at the tragic and sudden loss of Maddy. She was devoted to her wonderful partner, Joe, and our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to him and her family.”
A friend of Rice’s started a crowdfunding campaign to cover the costs of bringing her body home for a funeral, as Rice did not have travel insurance that would cover it, which was up to $26,000 by Wednesday afternoon.
