Chrisley Knows Best star Savannah Chrisley is recouping after a major car accident on Monday left her with broken vertebrae and severe body pain. Tuesday, the 19-year-old reality star said on an Instagram post that the previous days were some of the toughest days after the accident. Chrisley says she believes that God made those days so difficult because she began straying away from His word.
Chrisley says the accident happened after her floor mat got stuck behind the car pedals and she looked down for a moment to move them.
She says she remembers looking down to fix her mats when she saw a guardrail. She tried to over-correct herself, but the airbags went off immediately. What she remembers most is going in and out of consciousness screaming for help as cars just continued to pass.
She thanks the amazing man that stopped to helped her as everyone else was passing.
Chrisley was very fortunate to survive the crash. However, she said she received backlash from critics who believe she somehow “deserved” to be the victim of the life-threatening crash.
Chrisley said those of you saying I deserve this need Jesus and she will be helping by praying for them. But to all of those being supportive, she thanks them very much.
She will be recovering from broken vertebrae for the next month or more. The injury is causing numbness in her hands and fingers as well as neck and back pain.
She says while she takes the time to recover physically, she will also be recovering spiritually to become the best version of herself.
Reflecting on the scary incident, Chrisley admits that she made a mistake. However, she believes that God is using this situation to refocus her attention to Him.
Chrisley says we all make mistakes, but what matters most is how we learn and grow from them.
