Savannah’s dad Todd is sharing how she is doing. Fans know that Todd and Savannah are really close and of course he would rush to be by her side. Here is what Todd had to say about Savannah.

“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.”

Savannah Chrisley was actually driving in the rain when she had an issue with the floor mat. She reached down to fix it and in the process it got stuck under the gas pedal. Savannah didn’t look away for long, but it was long enough that she hit a guardrail. It sounds like Todd is a bit afraid to let her drive again in the future. He actually finished his statement by saying, “Everyone look out for the girl wearing the helmet and riding a tricycle down the highways going forward.”

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-

In the pictures from the hospital, Savannah is seen wearing a neck brace. It took her a bit to speak out about it, but E! Online shared that today Savannah finally broke her silence about the accident. She went to Instagram and shared about what happened and told the same story as her dad. Savannah explained that when she looked up she actually overcorrected. She then went on to thank whoever the man was that helped save her.

“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.”

It turns out that some people have actually been saying that Savannah Chrisley deserved it. She shared that she will be praying for the people who said this and that they need Jesus in their life. She said that she will also be taking time to recover spiritually and mentally while she spends time getting better. Savannah also sent out thanks to everyone that was supporting her and on her side.

Fans are glad to hear that Savannah Chrisley survived and will make a recovery. She has a long road ahead of her, though. Don’t miss Savannah, Todd, and the rest of the family when Chrisley Knows Best returns to USA.
