The lawyer chased after her fleeing husband in a dramatic car chase that ended in a horrific accident.
She then lost control of the car and rammed into a tree, leaving her seriously injured and the car badly damaged.
Eyewitnesses said immediately the husband immediately made a U-turn after he saw his wife’s car getting involved in the accident.
The side chic got off the car and fled the scene while the lawyer’s husband rallied to rescue his wife.
