A mother who killed a six-month-old daughter after ploughing into a family car in a drunken crash has said the ‘guilt will stay forever’ as she was jailed for four years today. 

Lucy Dyer, 23, was behind the wheel of a BMW when she smashed into a family car with baby Eva strapped into a child seat in Llanelli, South Wales in a 20mph zone last month.

The mother-of-one admitted drink-driving and causing death by dangerous driving at crossroads in the town.

Swansea Crown Court heard Dyer and a relative had been drinking in the Carwyn James pub in the town before heading home at 9pm.

Dyer failed to give way at the crossroad junction before ploughing into the side of the car as Eva sat in the back of the family car.

The six-month-old was taken to University Hospital Wales in Cardiff, for surgery but had suffered a brain stem injury.

She was put on life support but was pronounced dead at around 2pm the following day in October.

Dyer was arrested and later provided a specimen of breath which revealed the presence of 46 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, the legal limit being 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres.

Eva’s parents Florin and Carmen – who originate from Romania but now live in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire – spoke of their beloved daughter after her death.

They said: ‘We are distraught by our loss. Eva Maria, only six months old, will be missed by us all.

‘She was our miracle, our perfect baby girl, a gift from God. She will always be in our hearts.

‘We would like to thank everyone for their support at this horrific time. It has meant so much to the whole family. We would now like time to grieve and would ask to be given privacy in which to do so.’ 

In court today Dyer said the ‘guilt will stay forever’ and that she would ‘never intentionally harm any child.’

She said: ‘I would like to say how truly sorry I am to the family in their tragic loss. I am truly heartbroken and devastated.

‘The guilt will stay forever. If I had the power to turn the clock back I would. I can’t imagine all the pain that the family are going through.

‘I am a caring person and I will never be able to forget this tragedy, as I know the family will also. 

‘I am truly very sorry, and I hope that one day through all of the pain, the family will be able to forgive me*.may she rest in peace.’
