She followed the driver with her dash camera on, and she said she continued flashing her lights for about a mile-and-a-half until he crashed into a car.
"Right as she was making a U-turn to get in the right-hand lane, he ran right into her, and basically crumbled her whole front end," said Black.
A family member said the woman is sore, but is going to be OK. Troopers said the man behind the wheel is Roger Roth. According to the jail log, he's facing DUI charges.
"The state trooper said it's a miracle that they're alive, that they were able to come out how they did," Black said.
