WALES: Family of three killed in car crash.


A COUPLE and their teenage son were killed in a car crash.

An unborn baby also died in the collision, which happened on the A467 between Crumlin and Abertillery, South Wales, on Friday evening.

Andrew Williams, 45, his wife Elaine, 44, and their 19-year-old son Craig, all from the Ebbw Vale area, died when their Renault Clio collided with a Land Rover Defender.

An 18-year-old woman from EbbwVale, a passenger in the Clio, is in a critical condition at Nevill Hall Hospital, Abergavenny. Her unborn baby was killed in the crash.

Blaenau Gwent MP Dai Davies said sheep wandering on to the road may have caused the crash.

Mr Davies said: "We've heard that they swerved to avoid sheep on the road, but obviously that's hearsay at the moment.

"We are devastated yet again as this is the second tragic accident in a relatively short space of time. Our thoughts are with the families involved."

Four teenage girls from Ebbw Vale were killed in a car crash in November.

Danielle Caswell and Katie Roberts, both 15, and 16-year-olds Louise Jones and Kayleigh Parry all died at the scene of the crash on a mountain road near the town.

Mr Davies said: "The stretches of road of both instances are difficult.

"In Crumlin there is trouble with slippage on the banks at the side of the road, but to my knowledge there are no problems in terms of traffic accidents.

"I understand that Mr Williams was the steward of a local club and this news is going to hit a lot of people very hard."
