Woman who lost her forehead in 120mph car crash 'still recovering' 14 years on

Grainne Kealy, now 36, was just 22 when a horrendous car crash "broke every bone in her face" and left her without a forehead, and years later she's still suffering the after-effects

woman who lost her forehead when her knees slammed into her face in a car crash has finally finished her reconstructive surgery 14 years later.

Grainne Kealy had her feet up on the dashboard while sitting in the passenger seat of her boyfriend's Jeep in 2007, before the car skidded on black ice.

The ice caused the car to veer off course and it crashed into a wall at 120mph.

Although the impact of the crash triggered the airbags to inflate, the force of the inflation pushed Grainne's feet towards her face.

This caused her knees to slam into her face with full force, leaving her with horrific injuries.

Grainne was left with fractures all over her face as well as brain injuries

She claims she broke "every bone in her face" and when she was rushed to hospital, doctors had no choice but to remove her forehead.

Speaking to Fabulous magazine, Grainne said: "I had nothing in place of my forehead. My head sunk in and I looked a ­little strange."

Doctors discovered she also had a cerebrospinal fluid leak from her brain, meaning she needed treatment from a neurosurgeon.

They told me that I had pushed in and up my face and they would have to basically pull it all out and put it back together," she said.

Although the operation was a success, Grainne found herself back in hospital a year later after suffering complications.

Finally, in 2009, Grainne had a 'new forehead' fitted, which was custom-made from Italian ceramic.Now, more than a decade after the crash, Grainne, who was 22 at the time, has finally completed plastic surgery and says her doctors are pleased with her progress.

But the lasting effects of the traumatic incident are still with her as she battles a brain injury.

She said: “I constantly lose words while in the middle of a conversation. This can happen to me 20 times a day.

Man gets to positions of power and authority and bring to bear their inner qualities. Position, as we have it here, is used to do all sorts of things; good and bad. But mostly and vexatiously, position blinds us as we use it to cheat and deny others their rights.
