Susan Penney, of Grimsby, was seriously injured in the accident and is permanently off work, while her driver – and boss - was slightly injured. The driver of the other car was killed.
Penney successfully sued her employer for a 'substantial six figure sum' following the accident in 1998 and the driver, who was taking them to a business meeting, was jailed for a year.
A court heard the driver had been talking on her hand-held mobile phone to her boyfriend to arrange a date, when she had approached a bend on the wrong side of the road, hitting an on-coming car head-on.
Since the accident, Penney has launched a campaign to ban use of mobile phones in cars and has arranged with road safety organisation Brake to meet with MP Janet Anderson next Tuesday.
