A nurse is lucky to be alive after an oncoming driver forced her car off the road and into a water-filled ditch, leaving her unconscious and suspended by her seatbelt.

Tracie Adams may have been knocked out for up to 30 minutes after her blue Ford Fiesta ST tilted onto its side off Queenborough Lane, Rayne.

Two men in a passing car spotted her at about 10pm on Sunday and dialled 999.

The pair, who are believed to live locally, and a paramedic pulled her from the wreckage.
