I was the car that they were coming towards, driving rediculously fast, weaving down the hill. I have no idea how God spared me and my 3 yr old. Milton- if u read this- please slow down!!! U know what that woman in the car w u was yelling as the car was on its side- I really hope that isn't true. U could have killed two ppl!!! God blessed us last Monday and I hope he continues to bless u as well.
