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 mother’s car, who had died just days before. Amy’s own car had been wrecked earlier, and she couldn’t afford a new one. But Thursday, Amy got a car, thanks to Stanley Slader of Muskogee. Stanley saw Amy’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.
