Another crash happened in January when the Amtrak train Loudermilk, Desiree, and dozens of other lawmakers were riding to the annual Republican retreat hit a garbage truck, killing two.
Barry and Desiree were driving on I-40 on the way back to Washington, D.C. early on Tuesday morning when their car was struck from behind by a second vehicle, which caused their car to veer off the road and flip multiple times, according to the lawmaker’s office. The car eventually landed on its passenger side.
Desiree thought she is dying as their car slung sideways and began rolling. “The next thing I thought of was my kids. They’re all flashing before my eyes, as they say,” she recounted. “And then the car stopped and I had time to think. That made me realize that’s what’s important.”
“The Loudermilks immediately acknowledged God’s hand in protecting them from serious injury, and they would appreciate your thoughts and prayers as they recover,” spokeswoman Shawna Mercer said in a statement.
Hence, Desiree along with Barry are politically active. Their children and grandchildren encouraged Desiree and Barry to become politically involved after 9/11. Barry’s chief of staff Rob Adkerson told, “After third or fourth incidents, you would think somebody would start to consider hanging it up. But I think it’s only reinforced his determination. Same thing with his wife. They’re more sure than ever that this is where they’re supposed to be.”
