Jade back behind the wheel after passing test

THE last time Jade Scrim got behind the wheel, she was involved in a horrific crash on Maryborough-Hervey Bay Rd, and needed to be cut from her car.

Because Ms Scrim suffered a brain injury in the crash last June, she needed to resit a practical driving test before she could drive again.

And last Friday the bubbly 22 year old passed.

"They just made me drive around, and observed how I drove and made sure I gave way," she said.

"It was actually quite fun."

Ms Scrim and her father Andrew touched Chronicle readers after sharing their story of fear and recovery.

On Facebook, Sarah King said the crash was an important reminder for all drivers.

"What a beautiful brave woman you are Jade Scrim," she said.

"Someone was definitely watching over you that day."
