Grace Under Fire:
Documentary profiles woman’s near fatal crash on the Golden Gate
By Jessie Janssen
From Jan. 10–12, the bridge will shut down to allow the construction of a movable median that will make the bridge a little safer for those who travel across it. This change is just a few yeas too late for Dr. Grace Dammann.
Dammann’s story of a near-fatal head-on collision on the bridge in 2008 is the focus of the 2014 award-winning documentary States of Grace, which shows how her life changed over the years due to this one moment, and how it could have been prevented.
