A young mum crashed her car into another vehicle killing a six-month-old baby while drink driving, a court heard today.
Lucy Dyer, 23, was behind the wheel when she allegedly smashed into the other car, where baby Eva Maria Nichifor was inside in a child seat on Friday night.
The baby’s family were travelling in a blue Vauxhall Vectra when they were hit by the 3 Series BMW on a busy crossroads in Llanelli, South Wales, a court heard today.
Dyer appeared at Llanelli Magistrates’ Court today charged with causing death by dangerous driving and drink driving.
The mum-of-one is now set to appear at Swansea Crown Court on November 12.
Eva’s parents Carmen and Florin, who came to Carmarthen from Romania three years ago, paid tribute to their daughter following her death, describing the pain as ‘indescribable’.
Mum Carmen, a healthcare assistant, said: ‘It took all the happiness. It destroyed my family.
‘The house is empty without her. Our souls are burned on the inside.’
A fundraising page has raised over £9,000 for the heartbroken parents.
Flowers and children’s toys have been laid as tributes on the roadside grass verge.
