God saw to it that Tara was being followed on the highway that morning by doctors and nurses who were the first to arrive at the vehicle. What a God! Tara has essentially, by God's grace, mercy and protection, walked away from this potentially devastating incident with minor injuries.
Tara is herself an Army combat field medic and was taken to the nearby military hospital. We are thanking God as a family! I altered the story from the Tennessean newspaper below. See if you can guess where I changed it a bit.
Clarksville woman injured in one-vehicle crash on I-24
OAK GROVE, KY. — The Kentucky State Police investigated a single-vehicle, injury collision that occurred on I-24, at approximately the 92 mile-marker, on Monday at 7:54 a.m.
The preliminary investigation revealed that Tara Baird, 26 of Clarksville was operating a 2007 Ford Focus westbound on I-24 when it appears that the vehicle hydroplaned. Baird lost control, (this is when God Himself took control, wrapping her in His mighty to save arms) and the vehicle exited the right shoulder of the roadway. It struck an embankment and overturned several times. The vehicle came to rest upright off the roadway.
Baird was transported via ambulance to the Blanchfield Army Community Hospital for treatment. She was wearing a seatbelt. There were no passengers.
Trooper Luis Palmer investigated the collision. The Oak Grove Police Department and Oak Grove EMS assisted at the scene.
