A young woman from Dorset who made a miraculous recovery after being in a head-on crash with a tractor near Wareham is urging people to take driving on country roads more seriously.
Amy Tyrer was in intensive care for three weeks and had to move back in with her parents for 12 months.
Now living independently again she spoke to ITV News about her story for the first time.
The crash happened when Amy turned a corner and collided with a tractor.
A spike on the tractor went through Amy's neck. Doctors told her it could have damaged her vital organs - she was put into a coma at the scene and airlifted away.
Miraculously, her vital organs weren't damaged. But Amy did suffer an injury to her brain, and during her recovery she had to move back in with her parents in the Midlands.
The crash was ruled an accident by Dorset Police and nobody was prosecuted.
One year on from the life-changing event, Amy wants to warn others to be extra cautious on rural roads:
The latest Department for Transport figures show that although the number of collisions on roads in urban areas is much higher than on rural roads, there were fewer fatalities when driving in towns or cities, showing how dangerous a car crash can be when on a country road.
Amy now hopes her stories will make people extra careful driving on rural roads.
