ELK GROVE, Calif. (KTXL) — An Elk Grove woman told FOX40 a “Superman” helped save her life along with her kids after getting into a rollover crash last week.
It was supposed to be just like any other night for Becky Wright and her two kids.
“We were going up the corner for Popeyes chicken and we didn’t make it,” Wright recalled.
As the mother of two was approaching the intersection of Hampton Oak Drive and East Stockton Boulevard in Elk Grove last Friday, her entire life flashed before her eyes.
“Out of nowhere, a car hit us and we started flipping,” Wright said.
Wright said she tried to swerve out of the way.
“We landed on the driver side, so I was trying to push the wing above the driver seat out and I couldn’t. I didn’t have enough strength,” she recalled through tears.
Her kids were trapped inside and Wright said the panic quickly set in.
“I smelled smoke and I just imagined my car catching on fire, and my kids were inside,” Wright said. “Out of nowhere, Superman came and he ripped the wing off the top of the car.”
Once she and her kids were safe and out of the car, Wright said the man disappeared.
“Once he made sure we were fine, he was gone,” Wright said.
The crash happened less than a mile away from her home.
Wright is hoping to find and thank whoever helped her family that night.
“I just want to hug you, and I want to thank you. I know that people don’t help to get recognition, but for myself, I just want to thank you so much for saving my family,” she said with tears.
Wright’s kids had a few bruises and she walked away with a broken thumb.
She said it’s because of the mysterious man that their injuries were so minor.
“I owe you my world,” Wright said. “You saved my world. My kids are my world and you saved us.”
Wright is urging whoever the good Samaritan is to contact her through her Facebook page.
