A Tulsa woman is thankful to be alive and grateful for good Samaritans who helped her after someone rammed into her SUV, causing her to crash into poles, a gas meter and two fences.
Nicole Steed says it was the scariest experience of her life, she is hurt, and her car is totaled. However, she is thankful for people who jumped to help her.
"It was horrible,” Steed said.
Nicole Steed said around 1 a.m. Sunday morning, she turned out of her neighborhood onto Admiral near 193rd East Avenue to pick her husband up from a casino.
She said after she turned onto Admiral, a truck came over a hill and slammed into her SUV.
"It's so scary I keep picturing that night, not knowing how I was going to get out of there," Steed said.
Steed said she lost control of the vehicle and rammed into a water meter, then two power lines, knocking out power to the area, then a gas meter, before crashing through two fences and into some bushes and rolling.
Steed said several strangers called 911 and made sure the man driving the truck stayed at the scene. She said one man grabbed her hand to help her out of the SUV and even called her family, and she wants to find out who he is.
"If it wasn't for you guys, I probably wouldn't be here," Steed said.
She suffered a broken wrist and is getting surgery.
Steed said she is holding her family tight, thankful they weren't in the car with her, and is grateful for people who went out of their way to help.
"I want to say thank you to everybody that stopped," Steed said.
Officers ticketed the other driver for driving without insurance, having a suspended driver's license, and expired tags.
Police said the driver claimed Steed was parked in the road with no headlights on, so he didn't see her.
