    Do you mean “treated for a head injury” rather than to?

    Hope she gets a prison sentence. It was my car she wrecked and my children could have been in it. Insurance companies always give rubbish pay outs so doubt I’ll be able to get another car which I am very dependent on. She lied and said a child ran in the road but witnesses stated otherwise. There was a bottle of wine in the car and she hit about 90 on breatherliser. She shouldn’t be allowed behind a wheel again.
