A North Texas woman says she's thankful for the kindness of strangers who stopped and helped her get out of a very dangerous situation along Highway 121.
Lynn Carter lost control of her SUV as she hit a patch of black ice, approaching the onramp at Hall Johnson in Grapevine.
Her SUV fishtailed. She tried to steer and correct it, but instead, started to flip.
"I felt the truck rolling," she said. "Looked, saw the embankment, and I remember thinking, "Hmm! This may be the day!'"
It turned out to be the day for Good Samaritans, who stopped and jumped into action while another driver took video of the incident.
Richard Webb is one of the people who helped. He was on his way to work and was also about to enter the freeway ramp.
"I thank God she was able to climb out safely and that the vehicle didn't fall over the railing," he said.
"I just got out of the back of the car and there were just all these sweet precious people just there, and trying to make sure I was alright," said Carter.
Carter says she will never underestimate the potential danger of black ice and the kindness of total strangers.
"Just happy to be alive!" she said. "I kept high-fiving people and saying ‘I'm alive!' It was cute. We were all happy."
