A young girl who suffered severe injuries after she was involved in a car crash has been awarded a compensation payment worth millions of pounds, reports the Daily Mail.
Cerys Edwards, who is now six-years-old, was only a baby when her family's car was hit head-on by a car being driven on the wrong side of the road at 70mph in a 30mph zone. The accident caused major injuries to Cerys's brain and spine. She is now paralysed, unable to talk, reliant on a ventilator and requires 24-hour care.
According to the Daily Mail, the judge, in what he described as the “saddest' case he had ever come across, awarded Cerys a lump sum of just under £5 million, plus annual payments of £450,000 for the rest of her life.
