Savannah Chrisley Speaks Up for the First Time after Her Recent Brush with Death
The star of the popular TV show Chrisley Knows Best was lucky to escape with her life recently after being involved in a serious road accident. The 19-year-old Savannah Chrisley spoke up shortly after E! News corroborated the story of the freak car accident that took place during the early hours of Monday morning. The Atlanta-based beauty pageant winner spoke up a few hours after the incident, revealing the cause of the crash and expressing her sentiments towards the reactions of her fans.
According to her Instagram post, the 19-year-old had been driving down the highway when an errant floor mat got in between the pedals and the floor of the vehicle. She had lost sight of the road momentarily when she tried to rectify the floor mat and looked up just seconds before she would crash into the guard rails. An over-corrective steer had resulted in a grisly crash that fractured Savannah Chrisley’s vertebrae, leaving her in serious pain.
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-
She said that for what felt like twenty minutes, vehicles had continued to drive by as she lay there helpless and screaming in agony. It was only when a good Samaritan pulled over and rushed to help her that she finally got rescued from the mangled remains of her vehicle. The man who saved her life remains unknown to her and as a result is still unidentified. She was however extremely grateful for his act of kindness.
According to E! News, the 19-year-old’s father Todd Chrisley divulged that Savannah is now out of danger and is recovering from the fracture and several bruises and burns she sustained when the airbags deployed. He said that the beauty pageant queen could take up to six weeks to make a full recovery.
Savannah Chrisley’s accident elicited a variety of responses from her fans and her critics alike. While she was fully appreciative of all the well-wishers who were praying for her quick recovery, she also responded gracefully to the critics who said that she deserved what she had gotten. The Chrisley Knows Best star also revealed that she would be taking this downtime to recover spiritually as well as mentally in order to emerge the best version of herself after this jarring ordeal.
Her statement was full of religious anecdotes that showed the 19-year-old’s staunch beliefs and her resolve to focus on what was truly important in life. Her numerous well wishers are hoping that the reality star makes a quick and full recovery.
