Savannah Chrisley confirmed that she was in a serious car accident this week that left her with a broken vertebra. The Chrisley Knows Best star shared more about the incident on Instagram, offering fans a very intense play-by-play about how it all went down.
She wrote, "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 seat belt 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."
She went on to say that she will be recovering for the next month. Her dad, Todd Chrisley, released a statement to E! News about his daughter's terrifying ordeal. He said, "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. That's the call we received this morning about our daughter Savannah. Savannah survived with a fractured vertebrae in her neck and several bruises and burns from the airbags. We have a six-week recovery period and we are all so thankful to the good Lord above for His grace and mercy. Everyone look out for the girl wearing the helmet and riding a tricycle down the highways going forward."
