Innocent BystandersTraumatized By Wednesday's Crash

Several witnesses heard the gun shots and saw the crash Wednesday night, and two innocent bystanders were caught right in the middle of it when the men in the truck hit their car.

"We were at the wrong place at the wrong time, but we had no idea," said Kimberly Aaron, the driver of the car. "I mean it's not posted somewhere, don't come down this road there is a high speed chase." Aaron and her fiance were on their way home to Henderson Wednesday night when the drama unfolded

"I looked in the rear view mirror and I saw all of them cop cars coming at me," said Aaron. "They were coming so fast at us we didn't have time to do anything except for try to get out of the way and let them by." The blue truck slammed into them, but what happened next, Aaron says, is the most traumatic part.

"I got out and from out of nowhere they all came, 15 to 20 cops coming up with guns pulled and telling me to get down," said Aaron. Police handcuffed Aaron's fiancé, not knowing at first if he was one of the suspects.

"It's something you'll never forget," said Aaron. "I mean I've been in several wrecks, none like this. This was unbelievable." Aaron just moved to East Texas three weeks ago. She has three small children and now she and her fiancé are left without a car.

"I had what the state required," said Aaron. "I had liability insurance, no other, no extra, no nothing because that's all I could afford." Aaron says she's not sure what she is going to do. She is just thankful she and her fiancé are all right. Aaron went to the hospital this morning with neck and back pains. Her fiancé says he's feeling fine.
