Woman continues search for good Samaritan
Avery Beatty, of North Smithfield, who survived a car crash, said a stranger pulled over to keep her warm.
Now, she's determined to find a woman she only knows as "Denise."
"Denise, if you're out there, please come forward. I just want to thank you more than anything," Beatty said Monday during an interview with NBC 10 News.
While Beatty wonders if the good Samaritan doesn't want to be found, she still hopes to make some sort of contact to show her gratitude.
"It just made me feel, like, everything really was going to be OK, and it was really comforting to have that in such a scary moment," Beatty said.
Beatty was in a dangerous car accident on Dec. 1 near exit 11 on the Warwick/Cranston line at 1:30 p.m. Her car was a complete wreck on the side of 95 north.
"I watched them sweep it up off the highway," Beatty said. "It was completely mangled."
Beatty said she went into shock after crashing.
"I just remember sitting on the ground and sobbing," she said. "I was sick. I was scared. I didn't know what to do. My nose was bleeding."
That's when a stranger picked her up off the ground before first responders arrived and began to comfort her.
"I just pulled over to help you," the woman said. "I'm a mom. I'm going to help you. We're going to help you. It's OK. We're going to get through this."
Beatty suffered a concussion, as well as experienced a lot of bruising.
But all that pain seemed a little easier with a total stranger by her side.
"Thank you so much for being so nurturing and helping me through," Beatty said.
