In a tribute statement, her family said: “Stacey was a passionate rider and a very competent horsewoman.

“She had been riding since the age of six and had her own horse, Tarquin. She also loved driving and called her own car “Smartie”.

“Stacey and her family support tissue donation and hope that her donations will help improve the quality of life of not just one, but many others.

“She will be sadly missed by her mum, Jo, her dad, Ian, and brother, Mark, and the rest of the family.”

A spokesman for Transplant UK said: “Organ donations save thousands of lives every year and it is only possible through the kindness of donors and their families.

“Sadly there is still a shortage of organs and 400 people die every year waiting. We would urge people to talk to their loved ones about their wishes to be a donor.”

Stacey was driving towards Maldon when the head-on crash happened at about 5.10pm. Emergency services were unable to save her and she was declared dead at the scene.

The 42-year-old Clacton man who was driving the Golf suffered serious leg injuries while his 15-year-old son received minor injuries. Both were taken to Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, for treatment.

Stacey's death in a road traffic accident was the second fatal crash to happen on the Dengie peninsula at the weekend.

Just before 7pm on Friday, James Luck, 36, of London Road, Leigh-on-Sea, died when his sports car was in collision with a goods vehicle on the B1010 Lower Burnham Road between North Fambridge and Althorne.

Police are still appealing for witnesses to the crash. Anyone with any information should call 01245 452076.
