When the paramedics and police arrived on the scene they had little hope that any survivors would be found in the car. Fortunately Karen Brown, the driver of the vehicle, was in a pocket of car that was unaffected by the tractor trailer accident.

After a couple of days Karen was able to see the photos of her vehicle and was shocked by the severity of the accident.
