The woman died in hospital following a collision on the A541 Wrexham road in Pontblyddyn yesterday evening.
A 26-year-old man has been jailed after speeding on the M25 motorway for 14 miles in the wrong direction.
Watchdogs say Welsh police forces are better at tackling anti-social behaviour but more still needs to be done.
A Wrexham man has been jailed for seven-and-a-half years after a court heard he threatened to burn down his former partner's home.
Barry Ian Turnbull, 45, had earlier sent her a sympathy card with a photograph of the five Philpott children, who were killed in a Derby house fire last year.
Days later he set fire to a bin outside her home, which damaged windows and plastic pipes while the family were asleep in their beds.
Turnbull admitted arson with recklessness as to whether life would be endangered; putting his ex-partner in fear that violence would be used against her; and threatening to destroy property.
He was cleared of a more serious charge of arson with intent to endanger life.
Judge Rhys Rowlands, sitting at Mold Crown Court, described sending the sympathy card - on which Turnbull wrote 'RIP' - as 'beneath contempt'.
He said: “All right-thinking people would view that as nothing short of wicked."
On starting the fire, the judge told Turnbull: “You showed no concern at all for those inside the house. You left, no doubt feeling very pleased with yourself at the time.”
Over the next few weeks, thousands of motorists across Wales are likely to be stopped in spot-checks as police crack down on drink-driving.
It comes as figures show Wales' drinking culture costs every household £900 a year.
Today at Llandudno, Wales' four police forces launched their Christmas campaigns on drink-driving - and we spoke to some of the emergency workers working on the front line.
One ambulance worker told ITV News: "We're the ones who have to go into that car, look at that person injured in front of us, and think: Am I going to be able to save you?"
Mark Bellis is the Director of Policy Research and Development for Public Health Wales. As police across the country prepare to crack down on drink-driving this Christmas, he urges people: "Moderate your alcohol intake - and remember your Christmas for good reasons, not bad ones."
Relatives of 21-year-old Kieran Lea Arnold, who was killed by a drink-driver in June, have worked with North Wales Police to produce this campaign video ahead of Christmas.
Deputy Chief Constable Gareth Pritchard said: “To lose a child must be one of the hardest things a parent can face and I would like to thank Kieran’s family for assisting us with this year’s campaign.
"Please don’t drink and drive. Think about the consequences. You could face losing your licence and your job, face imprisonment and, much worse, have to live with the guilt of taking a life for the rest of yours. Don’t take the risk.”
The mother of 21-year-old Kieran Lea Arnold, who was killed by a drink-driver in June, has spoken of her family's loss in a short film created by North Wales police.
In the video, Donna Lea says: "Drink-driving ruins people’s lives. It is total devastation for our family, who now have been given a life sentence of living without our son, brother and grandson."
North Wales Police has launched its campaign to tackle the increased amount of drink-drivers at Christmas time.
Thousands of motorists face being stopped over the next few weeks as teams from all four Welsh forces conduct roadside checks across the country.
During Christmas last year, 500 people in Wales were caught driving over the legal limit and over 35,400 breath tests were carried out.
The North Wales campaign is being supported by the family of Kieran Lea Arnold, from Cymau, near Wrexham, who was killed by a drunk driver in June this year.
Kieran's family have spoken of the pain of losing their 'popular, gentle giant' to a drunk driver, and have helped put together a short film on the effects of getting behind the wheel when over the limit.
North Wales Police are asking anyone who witnessed a road traffic accident this morning in which an 18-year-old girl died to get in touch.
The accident happened at 0815 in Abergele Road, Bodelwyddan and involved a red Mercedes Box van and a white Vauxhall Corsa and a pedestrian.
The teenager girl died at the scene say police and her family have been informed. The driver of the Vauxhall Corsa sustained serious but not life threatening injuries and the van driver was arrested in connection with the collision.
Police are asking eyewitnesses to call 101 and quote reference No. P194123 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
– Inspector Martin Best of the Roads Policing Unit
A full investigation will now take place and so I’d like to hear from anyone who was driving or walking through Bodelwyddan just after 8am this morning and witnessed the collision.
An inquest has opened into the deaths of a couple killed when a light aircraft crashed at Hawarden Airport last Friday.
At a brief hearing in Ruthin, North East Wales coroner John Gittins formally opened the inquests into the deaths of Gary Anthony Vickers, 58, and Kaye Clarke, 43, both of Dingle Bank, Chester.
The provisional cause of death in Mr Vickers’s case was head and chest injuries, while Miss Clarke, who was a passenger in the plane, died later at the Countess of Chester Hospital of shock and haemorrhage.
Adjourning the inquests to a date to be fixed, the coroner said that investigations into the tragedy were expected to be extensive.
The father of Gary Vickers who was killed in a plane crash on Friday in Broughton has paid tribute to him.
Gordon Vickers said: "The accident with my Son Gary has been a great loss. We extend our condolences to Kaye's family.
"We would like to thank everybody who has sent their condolences.
"Gary was flying from Paris to Hawarden with his partner Kay Clarke when the accident happened.
"He was without doubt a very accomplished Pilot. Very meticulous in his approach to Flying. We both started flying about 15 years ago."
Mr Vickers said flying was his son's passion, adding: "Sadly there is always a risk. It is very sad that two lives have ended this way. We would like to thank the emergency services at Hawarden for their prompt attendance."
A woman who died following a plane crash at Hawarden Airport on Friday has been named as Kaye Clarke. The pilot of the plane, Gary Vickers was pronounced dead at the scene. An investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing.
