The accident took the lives of two of the teenagers in the car, Landon Bayram and Cullen Hart. Smith and his girlfriend survived the crash. He said he was still processing how he did it.
“It’s something for God,” Smith said. “I should not go today. I shouldn’t be talking to you right now. But I’m. God has a plan for me. I still don’t know what it is. “
Smith said he was sad, but not angry. He wants to share the story of his two lost friends and come up with a way to fix his life, which has been spared.
“They were just good people and they didn’t deserve what happened,” Smith said. “I am lucky to be sitting here today and I will never forget that. This will be with me until the day I die. ”
