To helpers: ‘I would give them a big hug’
TEN weeks in hospital, multiple broken bones and a slow recovery is what Chinchilla care worker Kerry Ann Bungard is facing.
Mrs Bungard was airlifted to Princess Alexandra Hospital after a threevehicle traffic crash in June.
In the aftermath of the crash, Mrs Bungard was focused on two strangers who helped.
“They were very, very calming and kept me in a relaxed state,” she said.
“They each held one of my hands and caressed my hands until help arrived.
“They were just absolutely marvellous, the way they helped me.”
The crash shut the Warrego Highway for five hours, 10km west of Dalby.
One car allegedly crossed onto the wrong side of the road and clipped a truck.
The car then spun out of control into Mrs Bungard’s vehicle.
The driver of the car was airlifted to a Brisbane hospital, while the passenger in Mrs Bungard’s vehicle suffered injuries.
