    I was the first car that it came close to hitting at first. I noticed that the oncoming car started coming into our lane, nearly hit me and the car I passed up, but ended up hitting the 3rd car. Flames went up right after the head on collision, debris was flying everywhere. I was at the turning lane to turn left to Ramona, from Warren. If I didn’t pass up the first car from our turning lane, I would’ve been the victim. I’m still shaken from this. My prayers go out to those who were injured and involved in this accident.
