Lorry kills shop mum.(News)
A MOTHER was killed by a runaway lorry-trailer as she took her children to a sweet shop.
Wendy Smith, 33, was hit head-on by the three-tonne trailer after it came loose from the lorry and careered straight at her.
Nicola, 10, and Chelcie, four, escaped because they had just turned a corner to go into the shop.
Wendy, of Halton Lea Gate, Northumberland, died in hospital shortly afterwards.
