Heartbroken mum loses unborn baby after being struck by a driver in horror crash

A heartbroken mum has revealed how she lost her unborn baby after she was struck by a driver who injured 11 others during a horror crash at a car meet.

Georgia Wood, 22, said her 20-month-old son, Harrison, had lost a “lifetime best friend” after she got the crushing news that her six-week-old baby had passed away.

The carer said she’d decided to go to the car meet in Scunthorpe, North Lincs., with pals Connor Richard, 23, and Chloe Boddy, 23, after earlier splitting up with her partner.

But minutes after Georgia filmed a series of speeding motors, a Ford Fiesta smashed into the crowd, leaving four people - including Connor - in a critical condition.

Georgia was rushed to hospital after suffering a bleed on the brain, along with gashes to the back of her head and cuts to her knees and ankles.

But even more tragically, doctors later performed a scan on her unborn baby, which revealed that the mum had suffered a shocking miscarriage.

Speaking today (Tues) about her devastating loss, Georgia said she was struggling to come to terms with the events of the evening.

She said: “I was looking forward to having a little brother or sister for my son, to be their lifetime best friend, as you don’t get closer than a sibling.

“That’s now all been taken away from both me and my son. My family have lost a niece or a nephew – and a grandchild.

“It’s really hard to think if I hadn’t gone there, I wouldn’t be in this situation now.

“And it’s not nice to think what was taken away from me because someone basically couldn’t handle their car.”

Georgia, from Doncaster, South Yorks., said she'd decided to go to the car meet last Saturday (Sept 24) with friends Connor and Chloe after splitting up with her boyfriend.

She said: “It was one of the first car meets that I had ever been to, but I’d just split up with my partner, and my friends said: “Let’s go out”.

“We should have originally gone to one in Sheffield, but I didn’t want to run into my ex.”

Georgia said the pals had originally headed to a car park near a set of supermarkets but had later moved to Flixborough Industrial Estate, in the North of the industrial town.

She said: “My friends are big into cars. They love that and I love my friends. They said the next location would be released in 15 minutes. So I said, “Let’s go.”

When Georgia got to the second location, she said the crowd numbered “a couple of hundred” and found a space where she could watch the cars driving down the street.

But disaster struck around 9.10 pm, when a Ford Fiesta smashed into bystanders, leaving Georgia and ten other people injured.
