A 19-year-old woman has been badly injured after a head-on crash which left her requiring surgery. The collision happened near the Hutt pub in Ravenshead and Nottingham Road was closed from around 7am on Sunday, June 5.

Police said two cars were involved in the collision – and three fire engines were called to the scene from the Ashfield, Blidworth and Arnold fire stations. Amelia Jackson, from Sutton-in-Ashfield, was on her way to work when it happened.

The crash happened over the Jubilee weekend and police at the time said two cars were involved and that the occupants had escaped with ‘minor injuries‘. However, Amelia’s family say she sustained multiple serious injuries which will take a long time to recover from.

The family said the teenager had to be cut from her car and she was then taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre for further treatment. Her family say the crash was not her fault and have pleaded with motorists to be careful when driving in adverse weather conditions.

Her mum Hayley Jackson said: “She was on her way to work and there were wet conditions that morning. We were in Scotland at the time and we had the police phoning us at 9am to tell us what had happened. It was horrendous.

“She had to be cut out of her car by the fire service who did a fantastic job. She now has two broken feet, a broken thigh bone, a dislocated left ankle, a broken vertebrae and lots of other injuries. She needed major surgery over two days and there is more to come.

“She is currently on the major trauma unit and it is going to be a long, long recovery. I think our message to people would be please just drive to the conditions, it’s so important. It doesn’t matter what the speed limit says.”

It was unclear how long the road was shut for. Speaking previously, a spokesman for the Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Please slow down and take care on the approaches.”
