The mother of two young boys killed in a horror crash has denied she was taking them to see the man now charged over their deaths when they were hit.
Shayleen Frail, 34, lost her two sons when a red Holden allegedly driven by 25-year-old Jacob Steven Donn mounted the gutter and hit them in Wellington, central west NSW, on January 5.
Sheldon, six, and Shane Shorey, seven, were killed instantly while Ms Frail was taken to hospital and placed into a coma after suffering spinal and leg injuries.
Speaking after she was released from hospital, Ms Frail said she was taking her sons to the Wellington Aquatic Centre at the time of the crash - and not to see Donn.
'I wasn't there to meet Jacob. I wasn't there for anything but to take my babies to the pool. We just didn't get to make it in there,' Ms Frail told Nine News.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Police initially believed the mother was leaving the pool with her two young sons and two other boys when the tragedy occurred.
But two survivors of the crash told loved ones they had not yet been into the pool that day.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Workers at Wellington Aquatic Centre corroborated the boy's claims they were not at the pool that day.
With NSW Police detectives now planning to interview the boys, Daily Mail Australia can confirm that Donn and Ms Frail both knew each other before the accident.
The crash happened on Warne Street, just outside the unit block where Donn and his girlfriend lived.
Police allege that in the moments before he ploughed into the group, he was doing burnouts on the road.
'(The surviving boy) got out of the car and said to Shayleen: 'The pool's this way?',' a source said.
'The crash scene is 200 metres away from the pool.'
This is the red car that police allege Donn was driving when he hit the group of five, killing two brothers. Donn's lawyer told Dubbo Local Court last week he admitted to being at the wheel
Ms Frail said just because she had been in jail in the past did not make her a bad mother. Pictured, her two young sons Shane and Sheldon Shorey
Donn and girlfriend Glenys Honeysett both knew Ms Frail having all grown up in the small country town, and would regularly chat on Facebook.
