Lisa & Paul Carter and Jade Mace

Lisa Carter, her husband Paul, and her daughter Jade Mace were all killed in a crash in Norfolk in January 2023, by a driver who had taken a cocktail of drugs before getting behind the wheel.

They had been travelling in their Vauxhall Mokka car on the A47 near North Runcton, when Aurelijus Cielevicius crashed into them head-on with his BMW while overtaking another vehicle. He had been driving up to 96mph. Prior to the collision, he had also been seen going through red lights.

Cielevicius was 15 times over the limit on Methylamphetamine and three times over the limit on cannabis. He also had Mephedrone and other drugs in his system.

On June 20, 2023 was jailed for 10 and a half years after having admitted three counts of causing death by dangerous driving. He was also disqualified from driving for 15 years.

Summer Mace, Lisa’s daughter and Jade’s sister, along with her father, Jason, have joined forces with RoadPeace to support the launch of the Fix our Broken Justice System campaign. They are eager to raise awareness about the lenient sentence handed down to Cielevicius for the deaths of three innocent people.

Speaking in court, Summer said: “For me there is no future – Mum, Paul and Jade were my whole world – they were the glue that held us all together. On the 15th of January, you did not just kill three of my family members, you killed and destroyed four entire family units. You have killed our future lives, thoughts and hopes – as we have none without them.

“Mum, Paul and Jade were unique, bright, caring and funny and outgoing people. Without their presence in our lives, the world is a duller place for everyone.”

Cielevicius will be eligible for parole after seven years.
