The family of a Ceredigion man seriously injured in a collision last weekend have praised emergency services as they anxiously wait for him to wake up from an induced coma.

Rob Turner, 39, was a passenger in a Renault Trafic van on Monday, 3 May when it was involved in a crash, between Synod Inn and Llanarth. The van left the road and hit a tree.

Both occupants of the car sustained serious injuries, but Rob suffered a broken neck, cracked skull and swelling on the brain.

Rob’s brother, Sean, told the Cambrian News Rob was placed in an induced coma and over the last week has made slow progress.

“We are hopeful. Progress is being made but it is slow. Patience is needed,” he said

Sean added: “I would like to say on behalf of the family a massive thank you to the fire service and all the emergency services who attended the crash.”
