The family of a young teacher who died after a car crash have said her organs will be donated "as her final gift."

Beca Mai Richards died in hospital on Thursday after the Vauxhall Corsa she was driving crashed with a cement mixer in Carmarthenshire on Friday afternoon.

Her family said they were "completely devastated" by the 23-year-old's death.

"She was such a loving and kind-hearted daughter, sister, friend and teacher and someone who always cared for others," they said in a statement.

Ms Richards, from Llangain in Carmarthenshire, was driving on the A478 at Penblewin, near Narberth, when her black Corsa collided with the cement mixer at about 17:00 BST.

She was taken to hospital and died on Thursday. Specialist officers from Dyfed-Powys Police are now supporting the family of Ms Richards.

"We are completely devastated in losing Beca," said her family.

"We take great pride that, as a donor, Beca will provide a better life for others as her final gift.

"As a family, we thank everyone, especially the intensive care unit and Wales Air Ambulance, for their support and care during these past few days."
