Mum, 58, exempt from wearing a seatbelt due to a hernia dies after flying out of her daughter’s car in a crash

BELT TRAGEDY

Sarah Evans died from head injuries at the scene in January last year

A MUM who was exempt from wearing a seatbelt because of a hernia died when she was thrown through the window of a car in a crash.

Sarah Evans, 58, had a doctor’s note allowing her not to use a belt.

But an inquest heard she was flung out of the front passenger window when her daughter’s Ford Ka hit barriers on the central reservation of the M4 near Swansea.

Sarah, of Llanelli, South Wales, died from head injuries at the scene in January last year.

Daughter Rachel, 26, had no drink or drugs in her system and had been obeying the speed limit.

The inquest was not told whether a seatbelt might have saved Sarah’s life.

At the time of the crash Mrs Evans' family described her as a mother who "lived and loved life to the full".

Acting senior coroner Colin Phillips said the post-mortem revealed Sarah had died as a result of catastrophic blunt force head injury.
He recorded the conclusion that Sarah died as a result of a road traffic collision.
