Fa­ther con­scious af­ter crash

Carmarthen Journal - - News -

THE fa­ther of a four-yearold girl who was killed in a car crash is now con­scious.

Daniel and Danielle Elm both suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries in the crash which hap­pened on the A40 be­tween Car­marthen and St Clears last Satur­day night.

Their daugh­ter, Dar­cyMay, who was sat in the back seat, died as a re­sult of her in­juries.

It is un­der­stood they were on their way to West Wales from their home in Swan­age, Dorset, for a hol­i­day when their car was in­volved in a crash with an­other ve­hi­cle.

Dyfed-Powys Po­lice said Danielle is un­der se­da­tion and Daniel is now con­scious.

But both still re­main in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion in hos­pi­tal.

In an state­ment is­sued by the fam­ily, they said: “Darcy-May’s mother, Danielle, re­mains in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion and un­der se­da­tion since the tragic ac­ci­dent on Satur­day evening. Her fa­ther, Daniel, also re­mains in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion, how­ever he is con­scious.

“We would once again like to thank ev­ery­one for their on­go­ing love and sup­port through­out this dif­fi­cult time.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with the cost of Darcy-May’s fu­neral and to sup­port the fam­ily while her par­ents re­main in hos­pi­tal. Al­most £17,000 was raised in just three days.

The page, set up by a friend of the fam­ily, reads: “The funds we raise will help with the costs of her fu­neral and ex­tra costs due to our dear­est friends Dani and Dan, her par­ents, be­ing in hos­pi­tal and un­able to work for the near­est fu­ture.”

“The Swan­age com­mu­nity is dev­as­tated and I’m sure I can count on all of you. This fundraiser has had the fam­ily’s con­sent. Thank you for read­ing our story. Please do­nate and share it. With love from all of us.”
