A six-month-old baby and her aunt have died after their car smashed into a lorry on the A487.
Anna Williams, 22, and little Millie Wyn Ginniver were travelling in a Ford Fiesta when it was in a collision with the larger vehicle in Gwynedd, Wales, shortly before 11.20am on Thursday.
The driver of the Fiesta, understood to be Millie’s mother and the sister of Ms Williams, remains in hospital in Stoke in a critical condition.
Ms Williams, from the Penrhyndeudraeth area, who was the front seat passenger in the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Millie, from the Blaenau Ffestiniog area, died later after being airlifted to Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool.
A dog that was also travelling in the car is believed to have been killed.
The lorry driver was not seriously injured.
A spokesperson for North Wales Police said: ‘Specialist officers are currently working to support the families who have requested that their privacy is respected at this difficult time.
‘Police continue to appeal for witnesses.
‘Anybody with information is asked to contact officers at the Roads Policing Unit on 101, quoting reference number W003114.’
