A woman who almost died in a crash in Cheltenham had to be cut free from the wreckage of her car, with 17 broken bones.
Emily Pringle is out of hospital and is now writing a book about her experience to help raise money for the emergency teams who saved her life, including the air ambulance.
Emily was trapped and her feet, leg and pelvis were crushed. The driver of the other car was also severely injured.
It took two air ambulances to help the both of them. She says she also perforated the carotid artery in her neck, which not many people survive.
Emily has told ITV West Country her daughter's visits to the hospital helped her steady recovery.
Emily was flown 20 minutes by the air ambulance to hospital in Bristol. She now just wants to thank the emergency service personnel who saved her life.
