Im getting sick and tired of hearing of women having these accidents, there has to be a common denominator, and if that is indeed phone use, lets not have the usual drivel, of best wishes and good luck, as one of these days someone will get killed be a driver on the phone.

Thank you for you intelligent comments. My daughter was the passenger and lady in question in this vehicle and was cut from the wreckage with spinal injuries. The attending police have CCTV footage from the filling station from which the other driver pulled in front of her husbands car. Naturally confirmation they are not at fault has followed. Their two year old daughter was very shaken up but only received superficial injuries. Can I suggest that before you play Columbo you ensure your brain is in gear and your facts are right. We appreciate your concern.

Some of the comments here are so sexist it's unbelievable. Some of you lot should be ashamed of yourselves. I'm guessing your a bunch of whiny old gits with nothing better to do than comment on this article with your braindead and ancient opinions. Hopefully next time it's your mother / daughter / sister in this situation people won't be as thick to post this . Maybe that's what it would take.

Especially now it's confirmed as being the passenger you look a right bunch of tw@ts.

Excuse me, are you saying that men never use their phones whilst driving? I think you will find you do, not only that, I've seen you picking your noses, lighting up cigarettes, playing with sat navs, and eyeing up female drivers when you should be focusing on the road.

Too right LexyGirl, and i have seen females...on the phone, calling texting and doing a selfie(The females favourite is to hold the phone in hand and talk into it whilst on loud speaker..they think thats ok and not a 3 pointer), doing make up, fiddling with sat navs, putting lippy on, doing their fringe in the rear view mirror, turning round to tell kids off in the rear, drinking a Costa,eating and looking for a lighter with fag in gob.

now theres more info it looks like someone pulled out from Tesco/Esso and didn't check/see the vehicle coming from lane 2(did lane one car flash the driver out onto the highway i wonder), its a dodgy section for sure, many also don't even notice cyclists they just see cars and a gap and go and plenty of cars approach the lights too fast in the hope the lights don't turn red and they have to wait a minute or 2.

Horribly stressful for family and friends. None of this helped by a senior reporter's somewhat careless reporting of the incident. (Where did he get the mistaken idea that it was *her* car? And so on.)

It's attention-grabbing as a headline, but that's about it.

Template writing fleshed out with stock phrases such as "black Ford Fiesta". Cue some slow applause for those three little words that mean so much. Need to fill some more white space? "Stock photography of big red shiny fire truck". Ding. A. Ling.

Given so little substance to read, it's no wonder that random strangers feel the need to add substance. It's unfortunate that they don't know, can't guess the facts. (Like, it's not only her spine that was injured. Did she spit the blood from her mouth to have a chinwag with the reporter? I doubt it. Enough said.)

A true Columbo would get a thumbs up. The down votes in this commentary draw attention to the ease with which lazy writing and lack of intelligence are recognisable. Easy, no need for a detective's badge.

It's quite ususal outside this petrol station for the car in lane 1 to "kindly" let the car come out of the petrol station. Lane 1 car doesnt bother looking in wing mirrow to see who is coming down lane 2 to see if safe. Quite often it's not, but then only the local residents know that.
