Lesley Jackson was struck by a passing car as she stepped from behind her school bus on the A98 Fraserburgh to Banff road in 2004. The youngster was thrown over the car bonnet, damaging her brain and shattering her pelvis. The fully-qualified dentist, now 23, has been left unable to practise due to the physical and mental after-effects of the crash. After previous hearings ruled Miss Jackson was mostly to blame for the incident, this morning the UK Supreme Court finally agreed to award her £1.1m damages.
