Family and friends paid tribute to the teen on Wednesday night as they gathered at the scene leaving flowers and cards for her.

Images showed family members sobbing uncontrollably as they embraced one another.

Some of Aivy’s favourite foods, including choc chip cookies and Hungry Jacks were laid alongside floral tributes at the scene overnight.

The teen’s cousin Kimberley Nguyen told News Corp Australia that Aivy would always look after her younger sister, aged 10.

“They were joined at the hip. She was smart and innocent. She was adorable,” she said on Wednesday.

Louis Datoi, a local father who left a bouquet of roses at the scene, said a car hit his wife at the same intersection last week and his children have been involved in near-misses.

“It happens every day. My wife was hit by a car last week and a friend was hit two weeks ago,” he reportedly said.

The driver of the truck has spoken to police but no charges have been laid.
