    Silent from a shock

    I am not sure if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes. Is the phrase "silent from a shock" correct English?

    1. The horrific accident involving two Formula One cars left the spectators silent from a shock.

    Re: Silent from a shock

    If you delete the article "a" and change "from" to "with", it will be fine.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
