THE father of a woman who suffered head injuries following Thursday’s road accident near Moel Famau says she is in ‘critical but stable’ condition.

Elizabeth Edwards, 53, from Llanbedr, was airlifted to hospital in Stoke after her car came off the Bwlch Pen Barras road near to the car parks at the popular tourist attraction.

Her father, John Hicks, told the Free Press: “My daughter was in a car accident yesterday. No one else was involved.

“She was taken to Stoke hospital with head injuries and has been operated on and is, we are told, critical but stable, that's all we know really.”

Two Wales Air Ambulance helicopters, a paramedic in a rapid response car, police and fire crews were all sent to the incident at about midday.

The road was closed for several hours in both directions while emergency crews dealt with the incident, but it was reopened shortly before 5pm.

Llanbedr DC county councillor, Huw Williams, said: "I am thinking of the victim and their family, it must be a very difficult time.

"This road is in my ward but it is not one that I have had concerns about before."

North Wales Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash to come forward by calling 101 using incident number U030991.
