Crash update

Post by Crash848 » Jun 16th, '17, 16:57

Hi All,

Just thought I would update on Andrea's condition. As you are probably aware she crashed on Friday at Llandow and went to hospital in Bridgend. She has a broken clavicle and 8 ribs, and at the time a collapsed lung. They did a chest drain but everything else is just left to heal itself. She came out of hospital on Monday night and is now at home for 6 weeks taking a concoction of pain relief.

Hey there, glad to hear she's on the mend. Who would have thought that 10MPH could cause so much damage!!!

I hope she hasn't been put off.

Wish her well from kim and I.

Wow she did go down with a bump.

Watching it happen was not the best and could see she was out cold from the moment that she hit the tarmac.

I must say watching her get up and walk inside I had hoped her injuries were not that bad but that is a lot of broken bones :( :shock:

Wishing her a very speedy recovery. Get well soon.
