Adam Johnson’s ex girlfriend has been injured in a serious car crash on her way to visit him in prison, it has been reported.
Stacey Flounders, 27, is believed to have been in a crash around 9am while travelling to HMP Mooreland in South Yorkshire, where Johnson is serving a sentence for child grooming.
She was left with a broken wrist, bruising to her nose and face and body and back and neck injuries, Mail Online reported.
It happened after she had dropped their daughter off at nursery.
According to the paper, she was driving a white Mercedes coupe, which has a top speed of 130mph.
She has been released from hospital and is recovering at home, they said.
Multi-millionaire Johnson is serving six years after admitting grooming and sexual activity with a 15-year-old.
The couple split after the case, but remain in contact as they have a child together.
He was found guilty by a jury in March last year of one offence of sexual activity with a child.
He was cleared of one charge relating to another sexual act.
Judge Jonathan Rose, when sentencing, said he was satisfied the girl suffered ‘severe psychological harm’ and that Johnson took advantage of ‘a young teenager’s adoration of a successful celebrity’.
