Baby leaves hospital after surviving motorway crash that killed her mother

A five-week-old baby airlifted from a motorway crash that killed her mother has been discharged from from hospital.

Ruby Bull was travelling with her mother Joanna on the M40 on Friday when they were in collision with a lorry near junction 9 at Wendlebury.

Mrs Bull, from Warwickshire, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash while Ruby was airlifted to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

In a statement, Mrs Bull’s family said: “Jo was vibrant, beautiful, and caring in so many ways. A girl who added zest to a room and who had found true love and happiness with her husband of just one year, Dave.

“To have her taken from us at such a happy time is utterly unbearable.”
