Father claims against driver cited in death of his child

A father, whose daughter was one of four girls killed in a 2006 road traffic accident on Llangynidr Moors in Powys, is claiming for damages as a secondary victim of the horrific car accident.

The 16-year-old girl was travelling with three friends in a Vauxhall Corsa driven by a young male when the car swerved on the mountain road causing the girls to be thrown from the vehicle. The driver was the only survivor and was later convicted of careless driving.

The 61-year-old father of one of the teenagers is now suing for his own personal injury after suffering severe psychiatric problems following the fatal accident.

The case was heard at the Cardiff Civil Justice Centre where the man broke down as he recalled the effect the accident and loss of his daughter has had on his family's lives.

A consultant psychiatrist told the court, "[The claimant] is suffering from a severe form of chronic post traumatic stress disorder. There has been a huge psychological impact on this man."

The father has been receiving psychiatric assistance since the incident took place five years ago.

The road traffic accident claim is ongoing.
