Kim And Krickitt Carpenter Married For Second Time

Kim And Krickitt Carpenter Married For Second Time, When Krickitt Carpenter settles down to watch the video of her own wedding, she remembers nothing of that day. ‘I do recognise the girl in the white dress walking down the aisle. She looks just like me, the 24-year old Krickitt, but I have no memory of how that girl feels,’ Krickitt, now 42, admits sadly.
Just ten weeks after that day, a horrific car accident put Krickitt in a coma for four months. When she awoke, she had no memory of the two years leading up to the accident. She didn’t even know who her husband was.
Kim and Krickitt Carpenter had been driving from their home in Las Vegas, New Mexico to Phoenix, Arizona, to visit Krickitt’s parents for Thanksgiving. Krickitt, who was in the driver’s seat, tried to swerve around a slow-moving lorry, when a truck following too closely on their tail hit the Carpenter’s car from behind, sending it rolling for a hundred feet and ripping off the roof.
Kim was bloodied and bruised, with broken ribs, a broken nose and severe lacerations. Krickitt, however, had to be cut out, unconscious, from the wreckage and airlifted to hospital. ‘I knew nothing until I awoke from a coma almost four months later, with no idea where I was or what had happened,’ she says today.
The head injuries Krickitt had sustained in the accident were so severe that at first she remembered nothing – not how to dress herself, brush her teeth, not even how to walk. ‘But these skills were all stored in my long-term memory, so once I was shown how to do them in intensive therapy, they came flooding back,’ she says.
