THE STORY:

Vanessa Gordon was seriously injured this week as she attempted to help another driver whose car flipped off the side of the road. It happened Monday along Highway 25 near Gap Creek Road in Northern Greenville County. A vehicle hit Vanessa Gordon, an experienced nurse and mother of three, as well as the injured driver and another Good Samaritan."She heard the noise and looked up and the car was there and it smashed all three of them into the back of the car,” husband Jason Gordon told WYFF News 4’s Ashley Swann. Jason works as a local firefighter and actually heard the call for help, but had no idea his wife was involved.“She was pretty much crushed from the waist down,” said Jason. “She's very fortunate to still be here."Vanessa has been in the ICU at Greenville Health System ever since. Jason says they've been overwhelmed with the support they've received online and in person from friends and family, especially his fellow firefighters at Parker District Fire Department. “They’ve already built a handicap ramp that my wife can use to get in. I didn't ask, didn't expect it, didn't even think about that far ahead,” Jason said. “But that just shows the brotherhood and the fire service that we have, and the family that we have." Vanessa has already had one surgery and will face many more. But Jason says he has no doubt she will be okay and return to helping others again soon.“It’s in her blood. It's in her nature,” said Jason. “She's a God-loving woman and that's what we do. It's going to be a long road, but we've got plenty of family and support and the good Lord with us. I don't know much more than we need."Jason says firefighters are holding blood drives in support of Vanessa. We’ve posted the information below. A Facebook page has been set up in support of the family. You can visit it here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Vanessa-Wright-Gordon/863599253718285?fref=ts
