The son of lottery winners Adrian Bayford and his ex-wife Gillian is reportedly seriously injured after a devastating quad bike crash.

Pals of the 13-year-old claim he was accidentally hit by a car driven by his own sister, aged 15, in the huge land around Adrian’s mansion.

She raced to get help after her younger brother flew off the quad and into a fence, reports The Sun.

Both the car and quad bike were gifts bought by Adrian – who used to be a postman – after his enormous EuroMillions scoop.

A helicopter raced to the scene of the rural 148-acre Cambridgeshire estate, but authorities decided to use a road to take the boy to the local hospital.

He is now fighting for his life in intensive care with his family at his bedside.

A source told The Sun: “He’s fighting for his life. It’s touch and go. This is devastating for Adrian and the whole family.

“Adrian is a lovely bloke who cares dearly about his kids. They were having fun at home and a tragic accident happened.”

Since securing a whopping £148 million in the 2012 win, Adrian moved to the Grade II-listed £12 million mansion.

Meanwhile, his wife Gillian has remarried and moved to Scotland – but she rushed down from the country to support her son in hospital.

One family friend said: “He’s sedated right now and everyone is just out of their minds with worry.

“He’s in intensive care and he’s in a bad way.

“His sister is really shaken up by the whole thing. It’s a nightmare.”

Cops say the incident happened at around 3pm on Monday.

A police spokesman said: “We were called with reports that a car and a quad bike had collided on private land.

"The rider of the quad, a teenage boy, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with serious injuries.”
