An Atmore woman who was ejected from her vehicle after flipping several times down Interstate 65 in an automobile accident Tuesday morning needs your prayers.
LaDana Williams Thomas, 31, was critically injured in a one-vehicle accident that occurred around 8:15 a.m. near the Mobile River. According to her mother, Lynn Williams, her daughter was on her way to work at the Mobile Metro Jail where she is a nurse.
Friday morning, Williams was able to share some encouraging news on her daughter's condition.
"They've upgraded her from critical condition to serious condition, but she is stable," Williams said. "So she has improved a little bit."
According to published reports, Thomas was traveling west on I-65 in a 2006 Nissan Altima when she apparently lost control, left the roadway and rolled several times into a ditch. Thomas was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the accident.
Williams said doctors are concerned with the condition of Thomas' liver, which was severely damaged with a cut in the accident. She said her daughter did not suffer any broken bones, but is having to use a respirator to breath due to bruising on her lungs.
"We need the community's prayers," Williams said.
Thomas has worked as a nurse at Atmore Nursing Center, Atmore Community Hospital and Fountain Correctional Facility.
