A young mum has died two weeks after sustaining serious injuries in a car crash.
Twenty-eight-year-old Heather Hughes, from Brackla, Bridgend, was the driver of a silver Audi A4 estate which collided with roadside furniture on the A473 Coychurch roundabout at around 3.10am on Saturday May 25.
South Wales Police said this morning that she died of her injuries at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff.
Paying tribute to Heather, her family said that she lived for her children, and “loved being a mum and all that came with it.”
A family statement said: “She was also an amazing daughter, sister, aunty and partner.
“She was always bubbly and full of energy and always had a smile on her face. If she chose to put her mind to something she gave it 100%. She had recently started a new job after years of dedicating her life to her children and she had made so many friends throughout her life.
“It is not an exaggeration that she left an impression on everyone who knew her. She packed as much fun into her life as she could and lived every day to the full. Her loss will be devastating to everyone who knew her – our lives will never be the same without her.”
South Wales Police said there were no other vehicles involved in the collision on May 25, but officers are appealing for any witnesses to contact them, and would like to speak to anyone who stopped to provide assistance or saw Heather’s Audi being driven in the Brynna or Bridgend area prior to the crash.
Anyone with information should contact the South Wales Police serious collision investigation unit on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
