An appeal has been made online for contributions to help fund the medical cost of 26-year-old Jason Alliman, a government prosecutor who remains hospitalised following a car crash. 

The appeal is been hosted on the GoFundMe website, which allows people to raise money for a variety of causes. 

A statement on the website noted that Alliman is loved by his family and respected by his peers. 

The family, which started the initiative, said the financial help is needed to ensure that the prosecutor gets the best medical care and and ultimately brought to full recovery. 

Alliman suffered serious head injuries last Monday, was unconscious for days, and had to undergo a brain surgery. 

The police say the prosecutor was travelling on a wet section of the Orange Bay main road in Hanover when his car skidded and collided with a vehicle that was going in the opposition direction. 

They say that particular roadway is accident prone as the surface has gotten smooth, slippery when wet and is in need of proper signage. 

The police say they have applied for signs to be erected, but that has not been done, prompting the Director of Public Prosecutions, Paula Llewellyn to declare that she will make a report to the head of the National Works Agency.
