(Daily Post) – A crash victim who was left in a coma for 14 weeks was invited to Parliament for the launch of a new report to drive change for brain injury survivors.

Josh Weeks, from Gwersyllt , Wrexham , was not expected to pull through after suffering a serious brain injury in the crash in 2016.

He was a front seat passenger in a car which lost control and crashed into a tree on Llay New Road in Wrexham. He had celebrated his 18th birthday just seven weeks earlier.

The former Ysgol Bryn Alun pupil was taken to Stoke Hospital – a major trauma centre – with severe brain injuries, serious breathing problems and a broken collar bone, and needed his face reconstructing after sustaining major facial and skull fractures. CONTINUE
