A 61-year-old lollipop lady who suffered life-changing head injuries after being hit by a car may receive a multi-million pound award in court. The driver of the vehicle that hit her initially rejected liability, but CCTV cameras recording the scene suggested that she was responsible for the incident.
The mother-of-two was injured as she was on duty helping children. Reports say that a woman in a Peugeot 307 struck her while she was crossing the street. The lollipop lady suffered life-threatening injuries, underwent emergency surgery, spent months in a high-dependency ward and suffered amnesia. She now requires round-the-clock residential care.
