Letter to the Editor, Jan. 12
Thank you for help after accident
To the Editor:
My name is Amanda Pendergraff. I had a car accident a little after 5 p.m. on Tuesday, January 3 in the Wheel area on Highway 64 coming back from Columbia. I had been to the high school bowling district championship tournament all day watching the Tullahoma High School team which my daughter is on.
I hadn't felt really well all day and before I left the bowling alley I started to get a really bad headache. I have been having these horrible headaches since Thanksgiving. As I was driving I noticed that I was weaving a bit and I was feeling worse. I thought to myself that I needed to find somewhere safe to pull over and call my husband to come get me. I don't remember anything after that until I started hitting some small trees and then the front porch of a house. I had blacked out because my blood pressure had gotten extremely high.
I want to take a moment to say "Thank You" to everyone that responded to the wreck. Things that happened after the wreck are still kind of a blur to me. I am not sure what Volunteer Fire Department responded because I live in Estill Springs and am not familiar with who responds to what areas. But thank you to the firefighters, the ambulance service, the local officers, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
And to the people whose yard I wound up in, I am so sorry, thank you for being understanding and thank you for the well wishes you gave me as they were putting me in the ambulance. I also want to say a special "Thank You" to a lady that had been following me and had noticed my weaving. I do not know her name but she was an angel that night. She helped me when I got out of the car and she did something that I will never forget... She offered to pray with me. Thank you so much for that prayer, whoever you are. I wish I had gotten your name, that prayer helped me more than you could know. It was a reminder that God is always there when we need him.
