THE FAMILY of a Garnant woman who was killed when her car was in collision with a coach, have said their loss is indescribable and has not yet sunk in.

Tributes have been paid to Bethan Davies, of Maes y Bedol, by her relatives, days ahead of her funeral.

Ms Davies, 41, died on Tuesday, January 29, during a collision involving a bus on the A483 between Tycroes and the Pont Abraham roundabout.

In a statement issued through Dyfed-Powys Police, her family said: "Bethan was a loving daughter, beloved sister, a valued friend and a work colleague to many and well-loved within the community.

"Our loss as a family is indescribable and the fact that she is no longer with us has not yet sunk in properly."

They added that they were "touched and grateful" for the messages of support and condolence from family, friends and "the community as a whole".

The bus was carrying Coleg Sir Gar students from the Ammanford campus to Llanelli when the collision occurred at 4.21pm.

Twelve of the student passengers were injured, but not seriously.

The road was closed until 4.15am the following morning while an investigation was carried out.

"Those who wish to pay their respect to Bethan are welcome to attend her funeral," added the family.

"Bethan would appreciate that people give a donation to the National Deaf Children's Charity in lieu of flowers."

The funeral will be held at Llanelli Crematorium on Thursday, February 7, at 10am.
