A grieving mother has vowed to stand by the man who was today jailed for six years for killing her five-year-old son in a collision after taking cocaine. Laura Bright, 23, married partner Dean Collins (pictured together, left) just months after he caused the horrific crash which killed her young son Joseph Smith (inset, right). Joseph died in the crash on his way to football practice because he was not strapped into a child’s booster seat (inset, left). Collins (right) admitted taking cocaine and had veered into the opposite lane, driving into oncoming traffic, just three months after passing his test. But his mother chose to stay by Collins after the smash and the couple tied the knot nearly a year later. The newlyweds even went Joseph’s grave after exchanging their vows, posing for pictures in their wedding outfits (centre).
