The driver of the sport-utility vehicle involved in a deadly wreck on Interstate 95 that killed six people Saturday night says she's lucky to be alive.
It's been a difficult 24 hours for Sharwen Pierre-Louis. She's sending prayers to the families of the lives lost.
"I had no control over it. They didn't have control over it," says Pierre-Louis. "Very scary."
What started out as a typical Saturday for Pierre-Louis became a day she will never forget. She was going to work and heading southbound on I-95.
"It happened so fast," she says.
Investigators say a tire issue caused a minivan with eight passengers to lose control just north of Indiantown Road, bouncing off the wall into traffic and her SUV.
"My eyes looked at the road, and I got hit," said Pierre-Louis.
Six passengers in that minivan died, two others have serious injuries. Pierre-Louis walked away with barely a scratch.
"I wish, hope the best for them," she said.
Pierre-Louis says she's come to one realization.
"God is real because that's the only reason I survived yesterday, and I came out with no scratches, and I can wiggle my 10 fingers, 10 toes," said Pierre-Louis.
