SEVEN years after she was knocked down by a car a conclusion of accidental death has been recorded on a 50-year-old woman.

An inquest heard June Michelle Jones suffered brain damage and was paralysed down one side after the collision in Rhyl in August, 2011.

Her behaviour also changed and could sometimes be challenging.

Mrs Jones, who had a stoma bag, went to live at the Coed Du Hall care home in Rhydymwyn, Flintshire, where the care she received was said to be exemplary.

She sometimes tried to remove the stoma and in April last year she was admitted to Wrexham Maelor Hospital with a bowel obstruction and she vomited gastric contents.

The stoma tube was “refashioned” to overcome the blockage but she developed sepsis and died on May 17.

Colo-rectal surgeon Dr Palanichamy Chandran told the inquest in Ruthin that the obstruction could have occurred at any time and it was a coincidence that the stoma had been adjusted the previous week as the operation had been a success.

The infection, he said, could have been caused by the vomiting.

John Gittins, coroner for North Wales East and Central, recorded a conclusion of accidental death.

“It can all be traced back to the accident,” he said.
