Brenna Owens says, "I was driving home, and as we took a sweeping corner another car ended up in our lane and those two cars hit head on, and the car in front of me rolled and collided with the front of my pickup, I'm glad I had the vehicle I did because if I had a smaller car, it probably would have been a lot worse.”

Owens says the cars were all traveling about 50 miles per hour at the time of the crash.
