Bundaberg praying for Anna

A BUNDABERG schoolgirl whose car smashed into a power pole on Tuesday afternoon remains in critical condition in a Brisbane hospital.

A Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH) spokeswoman yesterday said Anna Webb's condition had not improved since she was admitted to hospital on Tuesday evening.

Patient conditions are categorised into four areas being good, stable, serious or critical and Anna has been in the worst stage, critical, since the smash.

There has been an outpouring of support for the 17-year-old and her family from the Bundaberg community.

As the news of her condition spread throughout the region, people commented on the NewsMail's Facebook page with messages to Anna and her family.

"Praying for you Anna, you are so strong and beautiful, this is so sad but you will pull through, you have to, we miss you so much," Suzanne Adele wrote online.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with her family," Janine Hochmuth wrote.

The day after the crash, a spokeswoman from Anna's school, the Bundaberg Christian College, said the school community was praying for Anna and her family.

That sentiment was echoed online by people such as Emma McCarthy who said, "Prayers to both Anna and her family ... she's an amazing young lady and strong."

"Constantly praying for the Webb family and beautiful Anna Webb," Debbie Goulding added.

The crash happened about 3.20pm on Monday at Heidkes Rd, a short way down the road from Bundaberg Christian College.

Anna was trapped in the station wagon and had to be freed with the jaws of life.

She was taken to Bundaberg Hospital with serious head and chest injuries and was later airlifted to the RBWH.

Police are still investigating the matter.
