Priest comes out of nowhere to aid Illinois accident victim
CENTER, Mo. — Rescue workers in northeast Missouri struggled to extricate a young woman involved in a serious car wreck — until a mysterious priest arrived and helped calm rescuers and the victim. Now, friends and family of the rescued woman want to know: Who was that mysterious clergy?
KHQA-TV reports that the accident happened Sunday morning when a suspected drunk driver crossed the center line of Route 19 near Center, Mo., and struck a car driven by 19-year-old Katie Lentz of Quincy, Ill.
Rescue crews struggled to get Lentz out of the badly damaged car. After about an hour, Lentz asked them to pray out loud with her.
That's when a Catholic priest suddenly appeared. Soon, rescuers were able to extricate Lentz. The priest was nowhere to be found, the station reported.
She remains hospitalized in serious condition.
