Crash leaves toddler dead, and woman fights for life

A 21-MONTH-OLD toddler died last Sunday afternoon, in a crash between a car and a lorry in North Wales, and a woman was left fighting for her life.

The collision occurred on the A55 in Anglesey, near Gwalchmai, and a spokesman for North Wales Police said the crash involved a Ford Mondeo and an HGV.

The youngster died shortly after the emergency services arrived, and the spokesman added: “Sadly, we can confirm that a baby has died, and a woman has sustained serious, life-threatening injuries, following a road-traffic collision on the A55, near Gwalchmai.

“North Wales Police were called at 2.06pm to report a collision, which involved a Ford Mondeo and an HGV.”

Inspector Gareth Jones, of the Roads’ Policing Unit, said: “Sadly, this is being investigated as a fatal road-traffic collision, and our heartfelt sympathies remain with the baby boy’s family at this incredibly difficult time.

“The investigation is underway, and we are appealing to anybody to contact us who might have witnessed the collision, or who might have seen either vehicle, shortly before 2pm.”

Police, firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene, and North Wales Police later appealed for any witnesses, who saw a “slow-moving” HGV at the time, to contact the force.
