Two Die In Lake Car Plunge

Ponterwyd Two teenagers have died in a tragic incident on the A44 between Aberystwyth and Llangurig.

The car careered 6 metres down an embankment at Ponterwyd, and quickly became submerged in at least 4 feet of water at 00:30 this morning.

A 21 year old local man has consequently been arrested.




The road was closed for a short time, and was reopened later this morning.


Three other people survived the crash, being able to remove themselves from the stricken vehicle before emergency services arrived on the scene. A crane later lifted the car from Llywernog lake and onto the embankment.


The A44 is a well used, but not necessarily well lit main road with sharp bends and steep drops, and it is advised that you drive with caution, especially at night in this area.
