An Indiana high school student who survived a car crash that killed two friends on the way to the ball said the horrific episode would be with him until “the day I died.”
Jackson Smith was sitting in the back seat on his way to the Hamilton Heights High School prom when he was injured in a two-car crash Saturday night in Hamilton County.
“I am lucky to be sitting here today and I will never forget that. That will be with me until the day I die, “Smith told the WHAS news outlet.
Two of his friends, Landon Bayram and Cullen Hart, were killed in the crash, the newspaper reported.
“They were just good people and didn’t deserve what happened,” Smith told the store.
Smith and his girlfriend managed to escape the wreckage, but he said he did not remember the evening.
“I remember bits of the incident, I remember some sequences,” Smith told the store.
“I do not remember the sequence that led to the crash. I don’t even remember taking pictures before our prom.
Smith said he was grateful to be out of the incident.
“It’s something for God,” Smith said at the exit. “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. “
