Somethings in life can only be explained as a coincidence, but Julia Jolly insists that the man who saved her life was “an actual angel” and his presence was no coincidence.
Her first odd interaction with a stranger came about an hour before she was involved in a potentially fatal car accident. And it was that act of kindness that made her believe someone was looking out for her.
Julia Jolly lives in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
Before embarking on her trip from Oklahoma to Texas, Jolly stopped at a gas station to fill up her car. While inside the gas station store she noticed a man approach her car. She locked her car and went about her business.
When she returned to her car she found a note and a $10 bill. The note read, “For gas, Love Jesus”.
“I was like, oh, that’s cool, okay, thanks. That’s really cool. So, I just set it on my passenger side,” Jolly told KFOR.
Jolly was at a gas station when a stranger left a note and money on her car.
After she filled up her car with gas she went on her way, although the app she used took her a different way than she was used too.
About 45 minutes into her trip tragedy struck.
“I flew into a ditch in the middle of nowhere and wrecked my car after overcorrecting in the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma,” she wrote on Facebook.
Seemingly out of nowhere Jolly got into a one-car accident on the side of the road.
Jolly’s two friends happened to be driving behind her at the time and pulled over because they saw a cloud of dust on the side of the road, but they had no idea that Jolly caused the dust cloud.
The young woman’s car was a mangled mess.
Her car slammed into a tree and she blacked out. The next thing she remembered, was a man approaching her car.
“I saw this man coming down. I don’t know how he, I know my back windshield was blown out, and all my jackets were back there,” Jolly told KFOR. “He grabbed my jacket and got on the hood. He didn’t really say anything to me.”
The only thing she remembered about the man, whose name was Kevin, was him saying, her only way out was through the windshield.
Jolly’s car was totaled, yet she somehow escaped with only minor injuries.
Once she had been removed from the car she was in shock.
“It didn’t hit me until I was in the ambulance,” she recalled. “I was like, I probably wouldn’t have gotten out of there.”
While in the ambulance one of the EMTs mentioned how from the road it didn’t look like the accident was survivable. They also informed her that a few weeks earlier the area saw a similar accident and the victim wasn’t as lucky.
No one could believe Jolly survived the crash.
To make things even stranger, Jolly said that while everything in her car had violently shifted during the accident there was one thing that stayed in its place, the note.
“The note that the stranger gave me at the gas station didn’t even move from where I set it before the accident…I’m never spending that $10!!!!” she wrote on Facebook.
Jolly is extremely thankful to be alive and believes her interactions with two strangers that day was no coincidence.
