Mum-of-two, 37, was killed in head-on smash with student whose Toyota Yaris veered into wrong lane as tributes pour in | The Sun

TRIBUTES are pouring in for a mum-of-two killed in a head-on smash with a student whose car veered into the wrong lane.

Renata Sumiga, 37, was cruising with her husband and two children when they collided with the Toyota Yaris being driven by 21-year-old Mia Price.

The mum was raced to hospital with a "devastating brain injury", and tragically died six days later.

Price was more than 80 miles from home and in convoy with her father when the horror smash unfolded on a Wales A road in March last year.

She was today sentenced in the Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court after pleading guilty to causing death by careless and inconsiderate driving.

MailOnline reported the court heard how the law student had no recollection of what happened, and could not say why her car veered across the road.

Price's phone was checked by police and showed no evidence of activity while connected to the car via Bluetooth for music.

She had just picked up her new car, a second-hand Toyota Yaris.

Renata was sitting in the back seat of their family Volkswagen Passat, while her husband Radoslaw Sznajder drove and each of their sons sat in the front and back.

Along with the brain injury, the mum suffered abdominal injures in the smash, which happened near Cardiff University.

Price suffered a broken femur, ankle, and jaw which required surgery as well as an injury to her elbow.

Defending Stuart John said she had shown "genuine remorse" and her university studies had been affected by the crash.

He told the court: "Two families' lives have been ruined by this tragic collision and will be something this defendant will have to live with for the rest of her life."

In a victim impact statement, Renata's husband said life was not the same without "the glue that connected our family".

He said: "When I knew it was over I didn't know how to tell them. I was in the world of The Matrix myself and in a dream.

"I thought when I woke up it would all be over and back to normal. Once I told the boys, the youngest didn't understand but the oldest, I never wish any parent to hear a child cry like that."

He added: "Life is not the same without Renata. She was the glue that connected our family. She was our boss, drove us to action, made the children smile, and made us go out to play.

"She was always with the children. Without Renata life gives us less pleasure. We miss her very much. Our lives have collapsed like a house of cards."

Handing down the sentence to Price, Judge Richard Twomlow said: "The victim was a 37-year-old mother to those two boys. Her death has had a devastating effect on her family.

"Nothing I can say or any sentence I could pass could possibly alleviate the grief felt by her family as a result of her death."
