A mother who died in a crash in Mid Wales could not have survived her injuries according to a coroner.

Julie Marie Smith, 36, of Trefeglwys, died when she was involved in a head on crash on the A489 between Caersws and Newtown on Thursday November 9, last year.

An inquest into her death was held at Welshpool Magistrates Court on April 6.

The inquest heard how the mother of two had been driving back from Newtown when the crash happened on Penstrowed Bridge.

Following the crash her family issued a touching tribute and sister Claire Rowlands said they would never forget her beautiful smile.

She said: "She was the best sister I could have wished for. She was such a kind and caring person, would do anything for anybody and life will never be the same again.

“She lived for Martin and her beautiful boys. They were her life. We miss her so, so much and will do every day for the rest of our lives.

“But we will never forget her or that beautiful smile of hers.”

At the inquest coroner Andrew Barkley concluded the cause of death was due to a road traffic collision.
