INDIANAPOLIS - A Thorntown grandmother was counting her blessings Wednesday after walking away from a dramatic crash on Interstate 465 just one day earlier.
Cathi Gould was on her way home driving north on I-465 near Rockville Road when her commute became a near-death experience.
A tire from a southbound car flew off, went over the concrete barrier and crashed right in the middle of Gould’s windshield.
"I was just glad the kids weren't with me, my grandkids, because they're with me quite a bit sometimes. I think that was kind of the first thing was, 'Thank God I was by myself,'" Gould said.
The glass and metal crunched in and was less than an inch from Gould's face. Gould said she knows she's lucky to be alive.
Gould walked away with just a few cuts and scratches, but said she knows it could have been much worse.
"I think if I hadn't been in the fast lane it could have hit right smack in the driver's side. That probably would have killed me," Gould said.
Despite the terrifying experience, Gould remained calm and said she was grateful.
"If it's your time, it's your time. Yesterday wasn't my time," Gould said.
Indiana State Police were continuing their search for the driver of the 1995 Chevrolet Lumina who ran from the scene.
Anyone with information was asked to call ISP District 52 at (317) 899-8577.
