Woman recovering after spending days in crashed car

Boyfriend gives update on woman found days after crash

HEADLAND, AL (WSFA) - It’s been three days since Robin Fancher was found in a wrecked car - sandwiched between rocks and dirt off County Road 203 in Headland.

“She has a lot of issues and a long road and she’s just getting started - I’m glad she’s okay,” said Donald Garrett, Fancher’s boyfriend.

Donald Garrett, Robin Fancher’s boyfriend, has been at her bedside since she was pulled from his crushed Mitsubishi. He’s watching her slow recovery.

“Her left hip is crushed,” said Garrett. “They’ll have to put plates in it and she’ll have to learn to walk again.”

Fancher also has issues with her kidneys and blood clots in her lungs.

Family and friends had been looking for Fancher since April 17. Garrett says she left their apartment in Rehobeth and thinks she may have had a medical emergency, was disoriented, and crashed.

It's not clear how long she'd been in that ditch before a passerby noticed and called for help.

Someone Donald was told wants to remain anonymous - but someone to whom he’s forever grateful.

“A friend of mine put it like this - God answers prayers. God was looking after her. He sent an angel to find her. Best thing I can say is thank you,” said Garrett.

Garrett says he’s not sure when Fancher will be released from the hospital. He says she’s been heavily medicated so they have not been able to talk to her much about what happened.
