A 29-year-old mother from Adelphi, Md., lived to talk about a terrifying accident Tuesday morning when her car plunged right over the Outer Loop Beltway ramp that leads to northbound Interstate 95.

Deanna Reed just dropped her son off at daycare and told FOX 5 another car hit her Honda from behind sending her right through the guard rail, down a 30-foot drop to the edge of a creek. Reed said it felt like she was floating on the way down.

"I remember seeing a lot of green, so these are trees. I saw all the trees as I was going down but to be honest I felt nothing the entire time," Reed said.

The technical team of Prince George's County Fire and EMS hoisted Reed to safety and she sustained no serious injuries.

"It was divine intervention at its best and I don't take any credit for any of it. It was definitely Jesus," Reed told FOX 5 Wednesday evening from her Adelphi home.

Reed also said whoever hit her that morning did not stop and she thanks a Good Samaritan who helped keep her calm until rescuers arrived on the scene.
