The girl and two other passengers were trapped inside the wreckage of the Peugeot they were travelling in and fire fighters had to cut them out.
Police spokesmen said they received reports of a road traffic collision on the A5102 at Penymynydd adding: “Two of the occupants of the Peugeot suffered serious injuries and one suffered life-threatening injuries.”
I’ve never been in an accident before. I was hesitant about making a claim. First Personal Injury sorted it all out and explained everything.

The girl’s family is said to be devastated about her death. Her mum has described her as being ‘full of life’ and an ‘insightful teenager’. She said: “She was so kind, caring, loving and an absolute pleasure to be around. My daughter was an adventurist who loved sports and was an excellent swimmer.”
Reports say the girl was on a life-support machine but died after a few days. Police are appealing for witnesses.
