If there could be a best case scenario to a near fatal accident, Savannah Chrisley of “Chrisley Knows Best” knows what that is and is thanking God and her lucky stars.

On the evening of Jan. 17, we learned that the petite young beauty queen was involved in a single car collision that could have ended badly. The Chrisley patriarch, Todd, supplied a brief story of what had happened to E!, expressing his gratitude that his daughter would recover from her injuries.

Later on Instagram, Savannah shared more details on that accident. She confirmed her father’s story that she had reached down to pull the car mat from where it had slipped under her accelerator. She writes, “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.”

She goes on to say, “But what I do remember is going in and out of consciousness screaming for help and and cars just continued to pass.”

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-

A good Samaritan did stop after what she estimates was about 20 minutes and reached out to the police. She doesn’t know who that kind person was.

While Savannah’s injuries could have been worse, she did break a vertebrae in her neck and will be out of commission for about a month. But she is crediting the incident with getting her life back on track. Savannah shared a graphic on Instagram that says: “The only way God can show us He’s in control is to put us in situations we can’t control.” She then writes, “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 for me. And I truly think that God has made them so difficult because I began straying away from Him and His word.”

She ends her post saying, “I truly believe that God has put 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 live and be unbelievably happy.”

We’re sending lots of healing thoughts to Savannah for a rapid recovery.
