Ind. medic recovering after injured in wreck
The medic, a mother of two, suffered a fractured spine and hasn't been able to work; now she’s struggling to buy Christmas presents for her two daughters
BOONE COUNTY, Ind. — A Boone County mother is looking for a little Christmas help after she was badly injured in a crash while working as a paramedic. Since the mother of two hasn’t been able to work, she’s struggling to give her daughters a merry Christmas.
“All of a sudden, she was like ‘its ice,’ and that was the last thing she said” Amber Welch recalls of the accident. “She didn’t even get the word ice out and just started, slipped on black ice and just started flipping everywhere.”
Amber was working as a paramedic in route to a 911 call. That night however, she became the patient. “I don’t remember but I guess I hit the windshield a bunch of times and a whole bunch of places and my partner pulled me down from the windshield when we stopped. I don’t remember any of that. I think it’s just the fear of all of it that I just can’t remember.”
