    ‘I’m not that religious, but somebody was watching over me," Sgt. Mike Matzie told Channel 11's Amy Marcinkiewivz.

    Matzie said he's seen a lot during his time, but this crash on Easter Sunday is a lot to handle.

    "There was a guy from the fire department in front of me he was flashing his headlights and then he came to a complete stop," he said.

    Matzie was in the slow lane traveling beside a Lincoln that the Jeep collided with.

    "I saw it, I heard it. One of the headlights actually rolled right in front of me," he said.
