Me too, from the sight of it, we thought for sure someone was fatally injured in the car behind the SUV. What a blessing for her family that she was ok along with everyone else involved.

We drove by right as they were taking the woman out of the car and putting her into the ambulance. Glad to hear she is doing ok!
