Re: Van driver Martin Newman, who caused the deaths of two young children and has admitted causing death by dangerous has been jailed by Cardiff Crown Court, Wales, UK.<br />
The crash involved a car and a van on the westbound carriageway between junctions 28 and 29, at around 1.45pm.<br />
Gracie-Ann Wheaton, four, and her younger brother Jayden-Lee Wheaton, were on their way back from a birthday party at the time of the crash.<br />
The children, who were known by the surname Lucas, were taken – along with their mother – to University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff.<br />
But Gracie-Ann died on Sunday, February 6 following a cardiac arrest as a result of her injuries, and Jayden-Lee, three, passed away the following Friday.
