Woman dies in car crash Cardiff
A tragedy struck again in Wales when Eve Smith, a young lady, was involved in a car accident with two others. Darcy Ross, 21 and Rafel Jeanne (24), were killed in the crash. Shane Loughlin (32) and Sophie Russon (20), were also hurt in the accident. They are still in hospital.
Five people were reported missing after a night on Saturday. Police found the Volkswagen Tiguan two days later. Both South Wales Police as well as Gwent Police are currently investigating the circumstances of this crash.
Sophie Russon (the mother of one of the survivors) has criticised the police response. Anna Certowicz stated, “The police didn’t seem like it was worth investigation.”
Eve Smith’s family feels this tragedy especially since they lost their sister in a car wreck. Eve Smith, Sheridan Borg, and their sister Xana died in a car accident in 2015. Eve was left with a lot to grieve. Sheridan wrote a heartfelt tribute on Facebook to Eve, calling her sister “beautiful” as well as expressing her shock at the loss.
Eve was 13 years old when Xana passed away, and Sheridan at 15. Their pain and grief is compounded by the fact they lost their two sisters in car accidents, making it difficult for them to grieve.
