NASHVILLE, Tenn. – On Saturday, the family of a woman who was nearly killed in a crash on River Road Pike Friday morning got to meet the man who likely saved her life.

Christina Reeves was driving along the road when her family says she dozed off and swerved off the road into a drainage ditch.

Robert Ballow heard Christina's cries for help, and he stayed with her until help arrived.

"It was a person saying, ‘help me, somebody help me!' and if that's not compelling, I don't know what is," said Ballow.

Saturday, Christina's family got to meet Ballow in an emotional introduction outside of Vanderbilt Medical Center.

Ballow later got to see Christina who was still recovering in her hospital bed.

Christina's family said she was sitting up and talking Saturday, but doctors are still trying to figure out the extent of her injuries which include several fractures and broken ribs.
