"I looked at the car and I was like, 'I know who that is.' Two of the boys could stand. One of the boys was laying on the ground. He said his back kind of hurt. One of the boys was stuck in the passenger seat and couldn`t get out. The door was jammed," Sarini Vigo said.

Vigo realized her friend's brother was driving.

"She called because she saw and I was freaking out and she drove me there," Savannah Dagostini said.

Dagostini said she was relieved when she saw her twin brother.

"He got out of the car, was able to walk. He got scans because, before, his back was broken so we were really concerned about that but his back`s OK. His knee, he has to get stitches but he`s conscious, he`s OK -- just a couple scratches. He said he tried to see if everyone else was OK and he ended up helping the one who got Flight for Life," Dagostini said.
