It is a matter of context.  What did the writer write before and/or after that ONE sentence?  There is nothing in the sentence that indicates anyone lost consciousness.  There is nothing in the sentence that indicates anyone was hurt, or even that "she" (whoever that was) was involved in an accident. 

If we assume that the sentence posted is a correct quote of what the writer wrote, there were more than one accident.  Who was involved in them?  Maybe the writer was talking about accidents on a soccer field that involved the son of the person he refers to merely as "she", and "she" stopped coming to the games and/or practices after seeing her son hurt once too many times.  Context.  What is the context?
