SUMNER, Wash. (CIRCA via KOMO) — What are the chances of witnessing not one, but two, deadly car crashes and being with two people as they die?

For a woman in Washington state, it is reality.

On Tuesday, Rebecca Hunt witnessed a crash involving a DUI in Pierce County, Washington. She said she did everything she could to try and save a woman's life.

“Lets just save this lady, God help me,” Hunt said she was thinking.

Hunt and two other people administered CPR until paramedics arrived, but the woman did not survive.

Unfortunately, this was not the first time Hunt had witnessed a fatal crash.

She said she saw a boy die in a motorcycle crash in 2005 in Florida.

"His name is Elliott Richard Pape," she said, showing a button with his picture she still carries.

Pape was a bat boy for the Tampa Bay Rays.

"I ran across a highway of, I think eight lanes, when I saw his body to try to go over and save his life," Hunt said. "But he was definitely passed."

Witnessing two fatal car crashes is not easy. How does Hunt handle it? For one, she's a mental health professional. Hunt also credits her faith for her desire to help people

"I think that god puts us in situations that he knows we can handle," she said.
