Teacher killed in car crash driving to work on her first day back after treatment for cancer

Last week Caroline Nelson (45) celebrated the the 12th and final round of radiotherapy for the cancer she was diagnosed with in June.

“New beginnings” she told her friends on Facebook. “And from the flames Phoenix shall rise!” she added before treating herself to meatballs for tea at the local Ikea store.

On Monday Caroline, a teacher at a special educational needs school in Helensburgh, Scotland, was driving herself to work for her first day back after the treatment for cancer when the accident happened.

She died at the scene. An elderly couple in the other car were taken to hospital.

Caroline, the mother of two boys aged six and eight, was divorced shortly before her diagnosis.

Her family were too upset to speak to the media about their loss.

In a statement they merely said: “Caroline’s family are devastated and appreciate all the help and support they have received over the past few days.”
