My Story

On Monday, June 11, at 8:40 PM, Brittany O'Brien Gunnell was in a terrible accident. She was hit by an SUV while riding her bike home from "Annie" Musical rehearsal and thrown to the asphalt in the middle of the street. She suffered massive head injuries, and was rescued by her mother and little sister, Brennan, at the scene of the accident. She was taken by ambulance to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, and after being admitted to the ER, she was admitted to the ICU Neurotrauma Center.
