Uk News:Swansea bus crash: Injured passenger dies

Jessica Jing Ren

A woman who was injured after a bus hit a railway bridge has died.

As first reported on the 12th December by the EWN.

Jessica Jing Ren, 36, was travelling on the bus – which was bound for Swansea University – when it crashed into the bridge on Neath Road on 12 December. Ms Ren, a mother of one, was a visiting academic at the university’s accounting and finance department from Huanghuai University in China. A First Cymru spokesman said the bus was off its normal route due to a temporary road closure. Eight people were injured in the crash, including Olympic gold medallist and 400m hurdles world record holder Kevin Young, who is studying at the university.

South Wales Police said a 63-year-old man, who was arrested at the scene, has been released under investigation. Ms Ren’s family said in a statement: “Jessica was the loving wife of Wenquang Wang, a devoted mother to five-year-old Yushu Wang and the cherished Daughter of Mingqi Ren.

The bus was off its normal route due to a temporary road closure.

“A much loved and talented academic, Jessica will be deeply missed by her family and her friends both in China and in Swansea and will leave a great void in their lives.”

An inquest into Ms Ren’s death has been opened and adjourned until 17 June 2020.
