Lyndsey sustained multiple life-threatening injuries including significant abdominal injuries and a broken neck, leg, arm and elbow. A volunteer critical care paramedic from Suffolk Accident Rescue Service was first on scene and treated Lyndsey while fire crews worked to free her from her car. She was subsequently taken to the Critical Care Unit at Addenbrookes where she remained for four weeks before being discharged.
"I am so grateful for the help of the volunteer team from SARS, there is no doubt in my mind that the immediate treatment that I received from them was hugely influential in the outcome, it may not have been so positive otherwise."
