Talk about lucky! Could you imagine seeing your life flash before your eyes in this situation? You will not believe what saved this woman's life.

I'll admit that I did this just the other day, hit the gas instead of the break. It's happened to all of us. This woman must have had her heart in her stomach for hours.

Unfortunately, this doesn't help our womanly defense of being good drivers. Are we actually horrible drivers like the men say?
