A Rhoose business owner who arrived at work minutes after this morning's collision has told ITV News the mood locally is 'very sombre'.
Glenys Watson, who runs a cafe just yards from Rhws Primary School, comforted mothers and children in the aftermath.
She said due to the loud bang and screams some people initially thought a gun had been fired.
"Rhoose is a sleepy little village," she said. "This has woken that sleepy village up."
Nine people, including five children, were injured when the black Audi overturned.
