Joanne Taylor, 32, (pictured at Torquay Magistrates Court in 2009), was found dead in her home in January
A grief-stricken woman took her own life seven years after causing the death of her partner and brother in a car crash.
An inquest heard how Joanne Taylor, 32, was found dead in her home in January after taking an overdose.
The coroner heard the trigger in her declining health was the struggle to come to terms with the horrific crash in 2009.
Joanne was found dead at her home in Plymouth, Devon, by her sister Nicola Taylor, on January 2 this year.
In 2009, Joanne had driven 555 miles and not slept for 22 hours when she crashed into the back of a tractor, killing her 14-year-old half brother Michael Lang and partner Melissa Barnham, 24.
She admitted causing two counts of causing death by dangerous driving but was spared jail.
A judge gave her a suspended jail term following an emotional plea by her mother that she had already been given a 'life sentence.'
An inquest in Plymouth on Wednesday heard the accident had a 'significant impact' on Joanne's health.

In a statement, her mother Carol Lang, 55, told the inquest Joanne had battled with a number of issues, including diabetes.
She said: 'She was in denial about her diabetes. Then in 2009 on April 13, Joanne had been driving to Liverpool with her then-partner and brother, Daniel Lang, who was 14-years-old.
'There was an accident and Joanne's car went into the back of a tractor.
'Unfortunately her partner and Daniel did not survive. Apparently Joanne had had a microsleep and this event affected Joanne greatly.
'She received one counselling session, although she spoke to us as a family and felt she could have had more help. I think she was depressed.'
