Jeanine Ricchetti saw Saturday night's accident.

“We were screaming and crying and then praying. I think we were absolutely shocked. Saying 'Oh, my God, oh my God,' but I didn't know what to do because there was fire and I wanted to get away and yet I knew I was supposed to stay in my car, because you're supposed to be safer in the car,” Ricchetti said.

Ricchetti says she spoke with two woman who she saw walking towards to crash.

“One of them got out and told her daughter, 'Turn around and walk as far away from the fire as you can and don't look back,'" said Ricchetti.
