Yazmin Oukhellou struggling to come to terms with Jakes death as shes told shes lucky to be alive

The Only Way Is Essex star Yazmin Oukhellou is heartbreakingly struggling to come to terms with the death of her boyfriend Jake McLean, after a car accident in Turkey sadly claimed his life last weekend.

The 28 year old reality star had been enjoying a sun soaked getaway in Bodrum, when the fatal accident sadly took place on Sunday.

It is believed that Yazmin and Jake had been travelling home together after enjoying a night out, before Jake lost control of the car and it veered off a cliff.

Crawling from the wreckage, Yazmin dragged her injured body up a thick verge to flag down a fellow motorist to help, who immediately called for assistance.

Despite emergency services rushing to help the injured pair, Jake was sadly pronounced dead at the scene, while Yasmin was badly injured and transported to hospital where she underwent surgery following the accident.

Following the loss of someone so very dear to her, the TOWIE star has been struggling to process her grief, with a source close to Yazmin told the MailOnline: “Yaz is unable to feel any sense of relief because her heart has been ripped in two over Jake's death."

“She still can't come to terms with what has happened," they added.

According to friends, Yazmin is lucky to be alive following the accident that tragically killed Jake, and revealed that she is “desperate” to return home as soon as she is deemed medically fit to be discharged and make the journey.

While the circumstances surrounding the accident are not yet known, Jake's mum Anita Walsh has questioned if her son had been distracted.

Anita's said to have expressed her concerns to prosecutors who are currently investigating the crash.

According to bereaved mother, Jake was a skilled driver and would not ordinarily have lost control of the vehicle.

“We have spoken with Jake’s mother and she has told us that something was going on in the car that distracted him," an Assistant Prosecutor who cannot be named under Turkish Law told Mail Online.

"She said that he is a very skilled and experienced driver and would not have lost control of the car like this."

Officials investigating the crash are said to be exploring every avenue, including whether or not Jake was drink driving at the time of the crash.

The official added: “We are working on the basis that this was an accident possibly as the result of drink driving. This is a very touristy area, it was 4.30am and many of the night clubs are closing.

“Jake Robert McLean was speeding. When he was turning, he went over the edge. On the turn he did not break, that's why he flew off."
