She’s lucky to be alive!
Savannah Chrisley was involved in a horrific car accident in Atlanta on Monday, Jan. 16 — and is currently in the hospital after sustaining bumps, bruises and a fractured vertebrae in the crash. The Chrisley Knows Best star took to Instagram to share a photo of her injuries and details of the ordeal.
The pageant queen explained that the crash happened after a floor mat got stuck behind her pedals. She said she looked down for a “brief second” to adjust the mat, but when she looked back up, her car was heading for a guardrail. She credits her seatbelt and airbag — which deployed in the collision — with saving her life.
“But what I do remember is going in and out of consciousness screaming for help and cars just continued to pass,” the 19-year-old wrote on Instagram. “It felt like I had been laying there for at least 20 minutes begging for help.”
She said multiple cars passed her nearly totaled car on the road until one unknown man stopped and called the police. She gave the good Samaritan a heart-felt thank you in her post.
“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,” she wrote.
Meanwhile, her father — Georgia real estate mogul Todd Chrisley — released a statement regarding his daughter’s accident.
"It's the worst feeling in the world to get a call late at night while sleeping to hear on the other end that your child has been involved in a serious car accident and that you need to come to the hospital immediately,” Todd said in a statement to E! News. “We are all so thankful to the good Lord above for His grace and mercy."
