She was initially pronounced dead on the scene, but with five of us praying for her and the paramedics using the defibrillator on her, they life flighted her to the Vanderbilt trauma unit. She was home five days later with a broken leg, separated shoulder and "non life threatening" internal injuries I was amazed that she lived. When I went to check on her right after the impact, she had blood coming out of both ears and I could barely feel a pulse in her neck. God was looking out for her. We still haven't gone to court, but settled out with the insurance company. Didn't get that much, but did manage to do some much needed work on my house and pay off some of the wifes medical bills. The young woman has admitted that she has a drug and alcohol problem and has been going to rehab. I hope this was a wake up call for her. We're supposed to go to court in February unless they delay her trial again. The assistant da has been in touch with me and they're going to let her plea bargain and she'll get two years probation with time served. She's also going to have to submit to random drug tests from time to time and she'll always have the felony of vehicular assault on her record. That won't ever go away. And if she's involved in another at fault DUI accident, she'll go to prison from two to twelve years. IF she lives through another one, that is.
