A man has pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving after a car crash in Merthyr Tydfil last month.

Demi Mabbitt, 25, died of her injuries a week after the one-vehicle collision on Swansea Road in Merthyr Tydfil at about 23:45 BST on 5 April.

She was described by her family as a “kind, gentle soul”.

Cameron Jones, 29, admitted the offence at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court on Friday.

Mr Jones also pleaded guilty to one count of causing death by driving while uninsured.

He will be sentenced on 21 June, with Judge Tracey Lloyd-Clarke warning him that “an immediate custodial sentence” would follow given the “serious offences” for which he has pleaded guilty.

In a tribute released after her death, Ms Mabbitt, from Aberfan, was described by her family as “a wonderful daughter, granddaughter, sister, auntie and cousin”.

“She was the most kind, gentle soul who would do anything to help anyone,” they added.

“Our family are devastated, there are no words to describe the heartache and pain we are feeling.”
