PAINESVILLE, Ohio -- A woman involved in Wednesday's chain-reaction crash on I-90 in Lake County told Fox 8 News she shakes every time she thinks about what happened. 

Olga Skinner was driving behind a semi truck when it started to skid on the icy pavement. 

"The doors started opening.  I heard the noise, boom.  It wasn't me at that time. But I guess I am next," she said.

Olga knew at that instant there was nothing she could do to avoid a crash. 

"I was just pushing those brakes as hard as possible, like I already knew I am going to hit him. Just hiding my face, saying please don't make it too hard because I knew it was coming," she remembered.

She described the moments after impact this way:  "It is just fear, stress and shakiness.  Like what is happening?  When the car stopped it was like I am alive. I can move. First thing I did was grab my phone and call 911."

Olga is sore with some bruises but grateful to be alive.
