Savannah Chrisley of 'Chrisley Knows Best' fractured her vertebrae in a car accident

By Sheri Elfman

Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Chrisley Know Best's Savannah Chrisley was in a car accident on Monday and broke her vertebrae. She detailed the experience in an Instagram post Tuesday.

The reality star said her floor mat had gotten stuck behind her pedals and while looking down to try to fix it her car swerved into a guard rail. Her airbags deployed and she had her seat belt on so her injuries weren't as bad as they could've been, she explained.

Chrisley said she remembers going in and out of consciousness and screaming for help while cars 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..." the 19-year-old wrote. "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."

Chrisley said her broken vertebrae has caused numbness in her hands and fingers and pain throughout her neck, back and shoulders. She said that while she recovers physically, she will also work on "recovering spiritually and mentally."

"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," she wrote. "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."

Todd Chrisley gave a statement Tuesday to E! about 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. That's the call we received this morning about our daughter Savannah."

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-
