EXCLUSIVE: Woman pulled from burning SUV speaks out

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - A North Spokane woman rescued from a fiery crash says she is looking for the people who saved her life.

Dana Reed says she passed out while driving home on August 13th. Her Dodge Durango drifted into oncoming traffic and hit a dump truck at the intersection of Hawthorne and Parksmith. The SUV spun out of control and became wedged under the dump truck's trailer. 

"I saw metal flying but I didn't remember what had happened," Reed said on Tuesday. "It seemed like a dream."

Reed was still unconscious when the SUV erupted in flames. Two bystanders who witnessed the crash rushed to her rescue, pulling her from the burning SUV.

"Without them, I may not be here," Reed said. Doctors still don't know what caused her to black out. Reed suffered only bumps and bruises. Sheriff deputies say she is lucky to be alive.

Now Reed says she is hoping to find the people who helped save her. She calls them her guardian angels.

"They didn't have to stop," Reed said. "They didn't have to risk their lives to get me out of the truck, but they did."

If you were at the crash last week at Hawthorne and Parksmith, or may know someone who was, email Patrick Erickson at patrick.erickson@khq.com.
