Garland resident Marilix Santamaria tried to avoid the first car and the debris, but her Toyota Camry ended up wedged sideways under the container of another 18-wheeler.
Santamaria was taken to Parkland hospital and treated for a gash on her forehead and a few broken bones, but otherwise was not seriously hurt.
She said she doesn’t know how she survived the crash or why it didn’t take her head off. But she is thankful to be alive. God answered her prayers, she said.
Police said no one else was seriously hurt in the accident. The driver of the truck carrying the forklift was cited for failing to secure his load.
