A witness of a multi-car crash accident credits Jesus after successfully pulling out two women trapped inside the car seconds before it burst into flames.
At around two in the morning on Sunday, two women rode in an Uber car northbound on the Eastex Freeway, near Jefferson. When suddenly, a truck appeared and collided with the sedan. The vehicle then crashed into the center divider. Another car was also involved in the accident.
An Eyewitness Took Action
Clarence Shelvin, who witnessed the multi-car accident, said, “All of a sudden, we saw cars coming from all directions and crashing through the wall and everything.” When he saw that two women were trapped inside the sedan car, which caught fire, he immediately took action. He rallied several men with him to pull out the women.
“Once I saw the car was wrecked real bad, I knew there was a gas tank right in the back,” Clarence said. “I knew at any time there was going to be an explosion.”
Two Women Rescued
Thankfully, they were able to rescue the women trapped inside the car. But just seconds after pulling them out, the vehicle exploded. Clarence described that the “explosion went all over the place.”
Only one of the women had minor injuries, and authorities took her to a local hospital for treatment.
Clarence exclaimed, “It was just God’s work, and they’re alive.” Further, he credits Jesus for enabling him to rescue the two women. He said, “I’m happy. Thank you, Jesus Christ, I was able to pull them out, me and two other couple of guys. And that’s the most important thing that I could do tonight.”
But indeed, God protected the two women whom Clarence and the other men had rescued. The Bible says in Job 12:9-10, “Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”
