Geraldine (Gerri)’s Story

Geraldine Knutson better known as "Gerri" was in a car accident on Friday, August 16th in downtown Valley City, ND.  She was hit head on by a person traveling at an excessive speed due to a seizure.  Gerri was waiting to turn left at an intersection and they figure the impact was approximately 70+ mph.  She was taken to Mercy Hospital by ambulance and transferred to Sanford Health in Fargo.  She was admitted to CCU with numerous broken and shattered bones.  On Monday afternoon she was transferred from CCU to the 5th floor surgical unit.  Yesterday was her third surgery and one more  scheduled for Thursday of this week with another one Monday or Tuesday of next week.  She has a strong faith in God and is a strong fighter who is responding well to surgeries.  Gerri will have a long recovery ahead of her.  Gerri is able to speak to us, but very limited due to heavy sedation.  You can view the accident site at www.newsdakota.com.  She is presently in Room 596 on 5th Floor at Sanford Health, Fargo, ND.
