A woman in Australia who suffered a severe car crash eight years ago is now speaking to the media about a  somewhat bizarre side-effect to the crash - she has a French accent.  

After emerging from a coma, Leanne Rowe says she initially slurred her words, but those words eventually morphed into what sounded like a French accent.

"It makes me so angry because I am Australian," she Told ABC. "I am not French, [though] I do not have anything against the French people."

According to reports, Rowe's case is extremely rare; in the past 70 years there have been just 62 cases of Foreign Accent Syndrome recorded worldwide, including two Australians.
