'She was my best friend': Woman dies while jogging on her birthday

Tributes have poured in for a Brisbane woman who died after she was struck by a ute while out jogging on her birthday.

Caroline Davis had started her 33rd birthday with a morning jog through the Brisbane suburb of Chelmer before she was critically injured at the intersection of Honour Avenue and Bridge Street around 7am Tuesday.

She was taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital but later died of her injuries.

Her heartbroken sister, Bella, led a series of tributes, describing her as a “beautiful and caring soul” who lived her life to her fullest.

“She was my best friend and the best sister I could ever have asked for, and I already miss her more then I ever thought possible,” she wrote.

Brisbane & GPS rowing club chairman Ian Holzberger said “Caz” will be remembered as an “energetic and vivacious” person.

“Let us all respect Caz for what she brought to the rowing community in general and our club in particular by remembering her as a bright, funny, energetic vivacious lady who added tremendously to our sport,” he wrote in a Facebook post.

“Caz, a relative newcomer to the sport, worked hard at her sport as a sculler and as a coxswain and this year took part in the State titles and State and National Masters championships and was a regular competitor at inter-club regattas.”
