Melissa from Derry, tells the story of how she was injured in an accident in Letterkenny.
It was the one and only time she never wore a seatbelt while in the car.
Melissa was 19 when she was in the car crash in Letterkenny in June 2002. The three other people who were wearing seat-belts sustained no serious injuries.
She injured her spine and has been left a paraplegic for life. She is dependent on carers who visit her home three times a day.
Melissa said: “The worst day of my life was when I was told – Melissa, you’ll never walk again.”
The advert is one of four being broadcast in the North until the end of February.
