Missing Woman Found In Wrecked Car In Ditch

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A missing Cheatham County woman was found after wrecking her car in a ditch overnight.

Christina Reeves was injured in a single car crash just before1 a.m. Friday morning. Her family became worried when she didn't return home on Thursday night, and reported her missing to authorities in Cheatham County.

Police said the Reeves' car left the roadway, and ended up being hidden after going down an embankment.

Travis Reeves, the victim's husband, was on the phone with her at the time of the accident.

"I didn't actually hear the accident. she said, 'Hey I'm stopping at the next store to get a cup of coffee,' and that was the last time I talked to her," said Reeves.

Reeves said he thought the call had dropped, but said he had a feeling something was not right.

Nearly two hours later, neighbors along River Road in west Nashville heard someone screaming for help and found a wrecked car in a ditch. Crews responded and pulled Reeves from her vehicle.

If it weren't for her cries for help, police said she may have been stuck down there even longer.

Christina Reeves was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she was said to be in stable condition. Her husband said she suffered injuries to her spine, femur and knee.

"She's strong," he said. "She's five foot nothing, a 120 (pounds) of nothing and she's probably the strongest woman I have met in my life."

He said he is grateful for those who responded and came to his wife's aid.
