An Australian fashion designer is fighting for her life with horrific brain injuries after being hit and dragged by a police car at a pedestrian crossing during a trip to Spain

Caroline Breure, 33, was walking across the road on a green light in Barcelona when she was struck by a police vehicle responding to a nearby emergency on September 9.

The car had flashing lights on but no siren.  Ms Breure, who remains in a coma, has since undergone several surgeries, including having part of her skull removed to help reduce the swelling of her brain. 

But the long-term impact of her injuries are not known.

The designer, who owns No Saints shoes in Sydney, was travelling in Spain with her partner Johan.

The police officers were on their way to reports of a fight when they allegedly hit Ms Breure, whose body was dragged for several metres after impact.

Family have rushed to be by her side, including her mother Juceli, who has flown in from the family's native Brazil.  

Friends have also set up a fundraiser to help pay for Juceli's accommodation and Ms Breure's treatment, and hope to move her to a specialist treatment centre. 

'Caroline's recovery will be long and difficult, and will be costly to her family and loved ones,' the fundraiser reads. 

'Our ultimate goal is to have Caroline transferred to the Guttman Institute in Barcelona, where she will be able to start the road to recovery, and then be relocated home once she is well enough to travel.

'All donations will help give Caroline a fighting chance to recover and lead a normal life, as well as provide her mother the financial support that she needs to remain in Barcelona and provide care on a full time basis for her only child.'

Doctors have said it is too early to determine how badly she has been injured, but Ms Breure has begun to respond to family, Nine News reported.  

Ms Breure grew up in Brazil, and moved to Australia five years ago. She met Johan in 2017, and quit her job a year later to launch her shoe company No Saints with him. 

No Saints prides itself on ethically produced shoes, using faux leather products and workers in Portugal, where the company say their workers are paid fair wages.
