Onalaska Teen Searching for Anonymous Good Samaritan


LA CRESCENT, Minnesota (WXOW) -- An Onalaska teenager is on a search for a mystery woman who helped her through a traumatic car crash February 5. 

Mikaela Christianson said she was driving on Highway 14/61 in La Crescent when an SUV blew a stop sign and made a left turn, pulling out in front of her vehicle. 

"It just happened so fast," Mikaela said. "I just remember being in pain." 

Mikaela's arm was broken in four places. 

"My arm was deformed so I had surgery," she said. "Now I have 11 screws and a plate in there. I have to wear a cast for a month, then I'll have another cast put on, also for a month, and then I'll get a splint for a few weeks after that." 

But Mikaela also said a mystery woman made that dark day a bit brighter. 

"When I was screaming a woman opened up my passenger door," she said. "She turned off my car to make sure nothing else would happen and she was holding wrist, telling me everything would be OK." 

"She told me she was a nurse. She comforted me  and she called my parents for me," Mikaela said. 

"To get a call like that and find out your kid's been in some sort of accident, it's pretty scary," said Mikaela's father Mark Christianson. 

But in all the commotion of the crash scene, the mystery woman slipped away and neither Mikaela or her parents managed to get her name. 

Now, they have a simple message for her. 

"Thank you for taking care of my daughter," Mark Christianson said. 

"I just really want to say thanks to her because a lot of people are either too afraid to help or they just don't know how," Mikaela said. "It just means a lot that someone was willing to help me, and I hope that some day if I'm in a situation like that I'll help somebody too." 

If you have any information regarding the woman from the crash scene that can help Mikaela and her family track her down, please email wxowaedesk@wxow.com.
