(NEWSER) – A mysterious priest who showed up to pray at the site of a car crash near Center, Missouri, has some of the people involved talking about angels and miracles.
Katie Lentz, 19, was hit head-on by another car Sunday morning; the Mercedes she was driving flipped and she was pinned in the car, badly injured. After 45 futile minutes spent trying to remove her from the vehicle (during which some of rescuers' equipment broke), firefighters decided to take the risky step of turning the car upright.
Lentz, whose vitals were flagging, asked if someone would pray with her.
"I will," a voice said, according to local fire chief Raymond Reed. A black-clad priest stepped forward, apparently "from nowhere," USA Today reports.
