TELL CITY, IN (WFIE) -

A blood drive took place at St. Paul's Catholic Church in Tell City on Tuesday in honor of a local girl who was badly injured in a recent car wreck. 

On June 24, 18-year-old Allie Sadler and her friend, Breyan Underhill, wrecked a truck after veering off the road and hitting a guard rail. Underhill was unharmed, but one of Sadler's legs had to be amputated.

The American Red Cross said Sadler's life was saved my multiple blood transfusions following the crash. 

"I thank everybody that donated blood in the past because that's what saved my best friend's life, and everyone that donated today because you never know. Somebody you love might need that tomorrow," Underhill said.

The blood drive wrapped up at 7:00 Tuesday night.
