A woman has been convicted and jailed for dangerous driving in relation to a road traffic collision in which two other women were seriously injured.

31-year-old Heidi Dunt of Trem Eryri, Menai Bridge pleaded guilty to dangerous driving charges following the collision which happened on the A5025 near Pentraeth on Anglesey just after 9pm on June 4th last year.

Dunt, who was driving a black coloured Ford Focus at the time and was travelling towards Menai Bridge and collided with a red coloured Ford Kuga which was travelling in the opposite direction.

The female driver and passenger of the Ford Kuga were seriously injured and all three were taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.

At Caernarfon Crown Court yesterday (Thursday, 11th June) Dunt was sentenced to 18 months in prison and disqualified from driving for three years and nine months. She will also have to do an extended retest.

Sergeant Meurig Jones of the Roads Policing Unit said: “It is only by good fortune that this was not investigated as a fatal road traffic collision.

“The road conditions, driving at speed, coupled with poor tread on the tyres led to the vehicle losing control, and sadly all three had to be taken to hospital.

“We urge all drivers to be considerate and careful road users. We also urge all motorists keep regular checks of their tyres and the general roadworthiness of their vehicles. This is not just for the drivers’ safety but also for that of other road users.”
