Car crash fears ease with WAG Jessica on the mend

Irish WAG Jessica Lawlor is on the mend following her nightmare car crash which left her in hospital.

The 25-year-old partner of controversial midfielder Stephen Ireland (24), with whom she has a two-year-old son Jacob, is said to be making a good recovery following her car accident last week.

An Audi car in which she was a passenger crashed into a tree last Sunday morning, leaving her with a broken ankle and some internal swelling.

But a spokeswoman for Jessica said it could have been a lot worse.

She is now recovering at her family home in Prestbury, in Cheshire. "She's on the mend now, thank God. She's a very lucky girl. She's at home resting and taking it easy, Stephen's been looking after her," she said.

"She came out of hospital last Friday but I've only been speaking to Stephen about it. He said she's doing much better now and is going to be okay."

She said that no further details were known about the circumstances surrounding the accident, which happened during a night out with a group of pals.

She spent several days in hospital.
