A mother from Cork has asked The Road Safety Authority to intervene on her behalf, as she is looking for the NCT report on the car her daughter was driving when she died.
26 year old Amanda O’Flaherty died in a two-car crash in Cobh on December 29, 2012. Gardaí then subsequently found that her car was unroadworthy with defects in its rear suspension.
Amanda’s mother, Paula Murphy, says her daughter was driving a “death-trap” and she believes the NCT report will shed light on the cause of the crash. It is now understood that The Road Safety Authority has now instructed the NCT to issue the report to her.
Mrs Murphy told RedFM News today that she is happy her efforts have paid off. “I’m actually surprised I got the call, just a while ago from the RSA,” she said.
She went onto say: “And the lady I spoke to apologised profusely about the way that I’ve been treated “Just for the sake of one document, There was times when I felt: ‘Is this ever going to end?’
“Every door was closed in my face, but thank God my patience paid off.”
