Husband and wife die in horror smash on way to christening to become godparents

A husband and wife were killed in a horror smash as they drove to a christening where they were to become godparents.

David MacIntyre, 43, and wife Rebecca, 37, died at the scene after crashing their Vauxhall Corsa in the dead of night in the Lake District.

Devastated pals of the pair say beauty therapist Rebecca would “light up a whole room with her smile”.

While David was "truly amazing" and friends "never met a couple more suited for each other", the Daily Record was told.

The couple were from Alexandria in Scotland and died in in South Cumbria late on Saturday, March 14. Police confirmed them dead at the scene and found no other cars were involved in the crash.

Rebecca, from Tullichewan, ran beauty salon Rebecca’s Rituals in Hairzone Glamzone in Jamestown.

Staff there said they were “completely heartbroken”.

Best friend and niece Stephanie described Rebecca as “an absolute angel” and her husband David, from Haldane, “truly amazing”.

In the heartfelt tribute, she said: “Our Rebecca and David, her truly amazing husband, sadly were taken from us on Sunday in a car accident whilst on the way to become godparents at a christening.

“It doesn’t feel real. Rebecca was an absolute angel and words cannot describe how truly devastated we are.

“I’ve never met a couple more suited for each other. Never have I known a man so be as supportive and caring as David and I think I could recite in Rebecca’s words her version of their love story; She seen him, she said one day she was going to marry him and of course, she did.”

Paying tribute to former Vale Academy pupil Rebecca, Stephanie said: “She was one truly of my idols. So brave and so head strong.”

“She touched the hearts of everyone she met, she brought people closer and she’d plants seeds positivity and light into every single one of our lives.”

Stephanie told how Rebecca quit her previous job to chase her dream launching her own beauty business.

Hairzone Glamzone staff also paid tribute to Rebecca, saying: “Tragically this weekend we lost one of our sisters Rebecca and her husband.

“We are all completely heartbroken here at Hairzone. Our thoughts are with both family’s at this tragic time.”

Pat Brooks wrote: “The kindest loveliest wee human on this planet.”
