'Loving' teacher, 23, dies five days after horror crash with cement mixer

A 'LOVING' teacher, 23, has died five days after her car smashed into a cement mixer in a horror crash on a country road.

Beca Mai Richards, 23, lost her fight for life in intensive care following the tragic crash in her black Vauxhall Corsa.

And her family have decided to donate her organs to save others – just like she wanted as a "final gift".

Beca's car smashed into a blue Daf cement mixer lorry at around 5pm last Friday night near Narbeth, Pembs.

She was flown 90 miles by air ambulance to hospital in Cardiff – but tragically died.

Her heartbroken family say "loving and kind-hearted" Beca Mai "always cared for others" and had chosen to donate her organs.

In a tribute, they said: "We are completely devastated in losing Beca. She was such a loving and kind-hearted daughter, sister, friend and teacher and someone who always cared for others.

"We take great pride that, as a donor, Beca will provide a better life for others as her final gift.

"As a family, we thank everyone, especially the Intensive Care Unit and Wales Air Ambulance, for their support and care during these past few days.

"We would now like some time to grieve in private.”

Dyfed Powys Police said Beca's family were being supported by specially trained officers.

Officers investigating the crash said: "We're appealing for witnesses following a serious road traffic collision that happened on Friday August 20 2021, at approx. 5pm on the A478 near Penblewin, Narberth.

"The collision involved a Black Vauxhall Corsa and Blue Daf Cement Mixer Lorry.

"The female driver of the Black Vauxhall Corsa sustained serious injuries, and was conveyed by Air Ambulance to hospital in Cardiff."

The appeal said officers "would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or who was driving along the A478 between the Penblewin roundabout and Narbeth at around the time of the incident."
