Pair’s condition improving after horror crash


A MAN and woman seriously injured in a fatal crash are no longer fighting for life, writes SOPHIE DOUGHTY.

Lois Davidson lost her life when the Audi she was in with three other people crashed into a tree in Washington almost three weeks ago.

The driver and two other passengers were taken to hospital following the smash on the A194.

Police said the 35-year-old driver and a 26-year-old driver were in a critical condition following the collision, which happened at just after 10.30pm on Saturday, October 3.

However, while they remain in hospital, medics say their condition has since improved.

A 33-year-old man also injured in the collision was discharged from hospital in the days after the crash.

Emergency services were called after the silver Audi S3 crashed into a tree between the A195 and A182.

Lois, who was 27 and from Gateshead, was found dead inside the car. The cause of the collision is still being investigat­ed by officers from Northumbri­a Police’s motor patrols unit.

Anyone with informatio­n is asked to contact Northumbri­a Police on 101, quoting log 1088 031020.
