“I could hear a sports car coming from afar because it was revving its engine,” said Nur Abulawi.
Alex Forsythe said he was sitting at a red light when he witnessed the crash.
“I’ve never seen a car go airborne. That was just scary,” Forsythe said.
Abulawi said he and several drivers ran to pull the woman out and laid her down on the ground away from the fire. Unfortunately, she did not make it.
Abulawi said he gave it his best.
“Flight or fight, I’m definitely a fighter. If I have a chance to save somebody’s life, that’s what I’m going to do,” he said.
