After breaking a vertebrae in her neck among other injuries, the 19-year-old reality show star and daughter of Southern real estate mogul took to social media, sharing her traumatizing experience with her many followers.
A friend of Sadie Robertson and fellow television star from the South, young Savannah Chrisley was tragically involved in a car accident earlier this week that left her in the hospital.
As she writes on Instagram, "The past couple of days have been some of the toughest days for me." And shared several photos of her crushed car and one of herself in a neck brace along with a quote form pastor Steven Furtick.
"My floor mat had gotten stuck behind my pedals so I looked down for a brief second to try and get it out of the way and then I realized that I was headed straight towards the guardrails," young star revealed. "I tried to over correct but it didn’t help. As soon as I hit the guardrail my airbags came out and because of the airbags and seat belt the injuries weren’t near as bad as they could have been."
Luckily for her, a passerby witnessed the whole accident and helped her get medical attention as she was "going in and out of consciousness, screaming for help".
I can truly say that I now FULLY understand the meaning of this quote...the past couple of days have been some of the toughest days for me. And I truly think that God has made them so difficult because I began straying away from Him and His word...I got in a car accident early Monday morning because my floor mat had gotten stuck behind my pedals so I looked down for a brief second to try and get it out of the way and then I realized that I was headed straight towards the guardrails....I tried to over correct but it didn't help. As soon as I hit the guardrail my airbags came out and because of the airbags and seatbelt the injuries weren't near as bad as they could have been. But what I do remember is going in and out of consciousness screaming for help and cars just continued to pass. It felt like I had been laying there for at least twenty minutes begging for help. And then a man stopped and ran over to me and got the police my way...so thank you to the amazing man that stopped and helped me as everyone else was passing. I have no idea who you are but thank you...I could never repay you for your act of kindness. Also...to all of you hurtful people that are saying that I deserved it and got what was coming for me...you need Jesus and I'll help by praying for you. And to all of those who are being supportive...I thank you very much. It means the world. The next month or so I will be recovering from a broken vertebrae which has caused numbness in my hands and fingers and pain all throughout my neck, back, and shoulders. While recovering physically I'm going to take time to recover spiritually and mentally as well. I want to be the best version of myself possible and that will happen. We all make mistakes...all that matters is how we learn and grow from them. I truly believe that God has used this situation to open my eyes to what is truly important in life and to put my focus back on Him in order to live the right life and be unbelievably happy. So right now I just want to say thank you again...love you all ❤️ -SFC-
While having been in the hospital for several days, she is now out and has a six-week recovery period ahead of her. She stated that he has pain all throughout her neck, back, and shoulders, adding, "While recovering physically, I'm going to take time to recover spiritually and mentally as well."
We are praying that young Savannah has a speedy recovery and keeping her family in our thoughts as well.
