YOUNG MUM IN COMA AFTER BRIDDLESFORD ROAD CRASH UNDERGOES SURGERY


28-year-old Becky Wall, who was involved in a serious hit-and-run collision on Briddlesford Road almost 2 weeks ago, has undergone successful surgery on her pelvis this week.

The mum-of-one from Ryde remains in a coma in Southampton General Hospital after sustaining life-threatening injuries when her Vauxhall Astra was hit by a silver BMW on 27th June.

The driver of the BMW fled the scene and is yet to be arrested by Police, who are conducting a number of enquiries to locate the wanted male.

Over £11,700 has been raised to date to support Becky and her family at this difficult time. Through that fundraiser, an update has been given on Becky’s recovery…

Yesterday it was confirmed that Becky had undergone surgery on her pelvis, which was successful. An internal plate was installed with an external one connected by metal rods to hold everything in place whilst the fracture heals. Becky is said to have remained stable during the operation and has maintained stability afterwards.

Focus now turns to the long process of trying to safely bring Becky out of her coma.
