A kind stranger has reached out to help a Tulsa woman who was an innocent victim in a high-speed police chase. Amy Stevens' car was demolished when it was involved in a collision Monday night on US highway 75 just north of Tulsa.
She happened to be in the path of 17-year-old Victor Alexander. Alexander was fleeing from Tulsa Police. Amy was driving her late motherâ€™s car, who had died just days before. Amyâ€™s own car had been wrecked earlier, and she couldnâ€™t afford a new one. But Thursday, Amy got a car, thanks to Stanley Slader of Muskogee. Stanley saw Amyâ€™s story on Channel 6 and wanted to help out. Amy Stevens, "I'm happy. There is people out there and everyone takes care of each other, they know what it's like to be where I was."
The teenager who caused the crash died. A Bartlesville couple was also injured when the teenager hit their truck. They are recovering in a Tulsa hospital.
