But she failed to see a Yamaha motorbike coming towards her as she made a right turn into the Essar petrol station.

The motorcyclist was thrown into the air as he hit 18-year-old Matthews’ Volkswagen, suffering serious leg and hand injuries which required surgery.

Matthews, of Aberbran, Brecon, was fined £80 and received six penalty points. She must also pay costs of £110 and an £80 victim surcharge.
