A mother-of-one who survived a head-on collision has said she owes her life to people who donate blood.
Emily Pringle, from Cheltenham, suffered 27 broken bones, ruptured an artery in her neck and lost litres of blood following the crash on the A40 in July last year.
The 42-year-old was introduced to Karl Kellner, 34, whose blood was one of five units that helped to save her life, to raise awareness of the need for more male donors.
Mr Kellner, a married father from Stafford, had given blood just a few days before the crash at a local donation session.
Following her stay in hospital, Emily decided to write a book about her crash to help raise money for the emergency teams who responded on the day - including the air ambulance service, who sent two helicopters to the scene.
She urged members of the public - particularly men - to donate blood, particularly those from the Bristol and Gloucester areas where the NHS is hoping to recruit an additional 1,500 donors.
