We planned Disney for well over a year , we looked forward to it but it never happened.
Monday August 15th, 2011 we were driving down I95-S all was well until we were 4 miles pass Savannah when I heard a loud pop. I initially thought my trunk had opened and all our luggage spilled out, and before I could say “WTH” my husband had lost control of the vehicle and we were heading towards a metal guard rail at full speed.
I remember saying “God Please God Please” as the truck was flipping. I breathed harder and harder just to make sure I was still breathing. I could smell the smoke. I wanted to reach for my kids but I didn’t know how because I was still buckled in and my hands were shaking to bad to unbuckle myself. Before I could do anything else two men and my husband were pulling me from the sunroof of my car. At that moment I just wanted to know where my kids were but they were fine and my husband had pulled them out. They were scraped up but that was it. My husband escaped the car with no scratches except the ones I must have given him when I grabbed onto him . My mom was okay with the exception of some bruises and my brother needed 12 stitches in his arm.
I smashed my knee in to the dashboard pretty hard and am in a full leg brace and crushes and suffered a pretty big knot on my head.
By the grace of God and my angels and those awesome people who came from every side of I-95 to help us, I am here. I wish I had all of their names and addresses so that I can thank them. The couple behind us who kept traffic moving and who called 911. The Army firefighter who came out of nowhere to offer assistance and who kept us calm and the nurse who assured me my family members and I were okay. The paramedics were great and kept me calm. I truly thank everyone for their prayers and kind words and keeping me in their thoughts.
I am glad to be the one typing this and not someone else. I realize how precious life is and after seeing the pictures and reading a comment of someone who witnessed this accident, I am ever so glad to be alive and to have all of my family here with me.

We saw the aftermath of this wreck yesterday. We were in the northbound lanes, thankful not to have been traveling south. We hope the occupants lived through this, but from what we saw of the vehicle, that would be surprising.”
Lastly always buckle up people, it truly saved our lives along with the hand of god on us. Please I don’t want anyone to ever experience what we went through. It was the single handed most scariest moment of my life. I thought I had lost my entire family. The pictures posted are not for sympathy , they are to show you what I came through and why airbags and seatbelts are so important.
