Iona Jade Thomson was forced to spend her 18th birthday on the major trauma ward at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee after suffering an L5 burst fracture.

A Scots teenager was left walking around with a broken back for more than two days after medics allegedly missed it on her x-ray. Iona Jade Thomson was travelling to her first day of a new farm job when she was involved in a horror two car crash in Angus on September 1.

“So I don’t know how the consultant didn’t see it the first time. I’ve got a follow up in three weeks time where I’ll hopefully find out more information from the spine doctor. It’s going to be a long three to six months recovery and I’ll never be the same as what I used to be. “It was ladies day at Arbroath Football Club on the Saturday and my mum had got me tickets for my birthday. Everyone kept telling me I might not make it but I was determined I was going even though I was in unreal amounts of pain.

“I was put in a wheelchair and taken along to the major trauma ward and put on bedrest. I had a CT scan on Monday, an MRI scan on Wednesday and they hoped to get me out on Thursday afternoon because it was my 18th birthday. “When I saw the state of the car, I couldn’t believe that the outcome wasn’t so much worse. The next day, she was really sore but she was determined she was going to ladies day because she had been looking forward to it for months.
