MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee woman was pinned underneath her vehicle after a nasty crash on I-94 near Ryan Road. Some Good Samaritans rushed to her aid, and now, she's hoping to find them -- so she can thank them.
Veronica Gibbs says she was on her way to work just before 7:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 12th when some wildlife got in the way.
"I moved over to miss some ducks," Gibbs said. "I don't remember anything."
Through police reports, Gibbs has been able to piece together what happened.
"My car skidded on the passenger side and then flipped over. It says that I was partially ejected and the car was actually on my shoulder and my chest. I have a broken foot. My spleen was bleeding, a hematoma in my brain," Gibbs said.
Gibbs is now on a mission to find those who stopped to help her.
"Nobody had to stop," Gibbs said.
Gibbs says there's been one clue. At the scene, Gibbs was able to tell one person her mom's telephone number.
"Phone rings, from someone I don't recognize. Tells me he's a Marine," Theresa Enk, Gibbs' mother said.
After the crash, Gibbs' father, who lives in Florida, raced home.
"The hardest flight I ever had. We'd like to reach out (to these Good Samaritans) and buy them a steak dinner -- whatever we need to do," Christopher Gibbs said.
For the seven or eight people who stopped and likely want nothing in return, Gibbs hopes she's able to give them a heartfelt 'thank you.'
"I just want to do my best to show some appreciation for you for what you did for me," Gibbs said.
Gibbs said she thinks she can find a couple of the Good Samaritans with the help of the police reports.
