A car accident in Ankeny turns into a real Thanksgiving story. The victim, Krystal Sparks, 25, was thrown from the car and now her family say a guardian angel helped save her life that day.

“I’m very grateful that she’s alive, it could have been so much worse,” said Jennifer Fox, Krystal’s mother.

“She’s lucky to be alive,” said Hanna Tomlinson, a family friend.

The two women received an automated emergency text message from Fox’s daughter on Friday morning. He said there had been an accident southeast of Ankeny.

“You never want that kind of text,” Tomlinson said.

Fox drove to the scene and found the accident. Her daughter’s car was wrecked.

“I ran out of the car and said it was Krystal, is it Krystal? Because I saw her red hair in the ambulance on the stretcher,” Fox said.

Her daughter, Krystal, collided with a truck. She was ejected.

“She was found unconscious on the side of the road,” Fox said.

Krystal suffered a rash, black eye, and concussion. She barely remembers a woman who pulled up to the crash site, grabbed a blanket and sat with her on the side of the road until an ambulance arrived – a woman whom the family now calls a guardian angel.

“For what she does, I thank the Lord. It’s wonderful to know that there are still people like that,” Fox said.

But they didn’t know who the woman was. So Hannah Tomlinson posted on social media and found the rescuer later that day. Bernice Springer lives in Runnels. She didn’t want to be interviewed, telling Krystal’s family that she was just happy to help.

“You can never thank people like that enough. I wish there were more people like that here,” Tomlinson said.

Krystal Sparks is now out of the hospital and back to work. Her family hopes to meet Bernice Springer soon. They all say it will be a much more “thankful” Thanksgiving this year.
