A family is mourning the death of a young mother in a road crash, 16 months after her twin sister's suicide.

Carys Wright, 21, was a passenger in a Peugeot 106 car which was in collision with a Renault Laguna on the B5105 at Brymbo, Wrexham on Monday.

Her family said she was a "fantastic mother" to her 11-month-old baby son. An inquest was opened and adjourned.

The tragedy comes after her sister Amy Wright, 19, died at the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in September 2010.

An inquest in January 2011 heard how Amy fell 120ft (37m) from the aqueduct, near Llangollen, Denbighshire, after her boyfriend wanted to end their relationship.

The inquest was told her boyfriend of six months had told her he wanted some space and to be friends.

Amy drove to the aqueduct, left her phone and keys on the footpath, climbed over the railings and fell, the inquest heard.

Kirit Champaneria, the assistant deputy coroner for north east Wales, said at the time: "It causes me pain to record a verdict of suicide on one so young."

Along with her twin sister Carys, she was a member of the local Army Cadet Force, where she was a sergeant.

Both were former pupils at Ysgol Y Grango, in Rhos, near Wrexham.

'Extremely close'

Assistant head teacher, Kate Williams, said: "Carys was a student here at Ysgol y Grango.

"Like her sister, Amy, she was vivacious, full of life and had a lovely sense of humour.

"She involved herself in every aspect of school life, particularly the choir, and was involved in the local Army cadets.

"She had a wide circle of friends and was a happy young lady.

"The twins were extremely close and were always there for each other.

"Both were real characters in their year group.

"The staff, pupils and governors of Ysgol y Grango would like to convey their deepest condolences to Carys' family at this sad time."

Her family in a tribute said Carys was the mother to 11-month-old Noah, partner to Adam Hind, daughter to Michelle and Ian and granddaughter to David, Eileen, the late Mary, and Errol.

"She was a fun loving person and a fantastic mother to her little sweetheart," the family said.

"Cazz, as she was known to her large group of friends, will miss her dearly. Carys will be sorely missed by everyone, but she will never be forgotten.

"Good night Princess from Adam and Noah James."

The male driver of the Peugeot suffered serious injuries in the crash.

An inquest into Carys' death has been opened and adjourned to a date to be fixed.

A provisional cause of death has been given as multiple injuries.
