NASHVILLE, Tennessee – A 21-year-old college student and her boyfriend were driving home from Florida last week when they got into a bad accident, and neither of them remember very much.

According to WTVF, Arika Stovall’s boyfriend Hunter was driving and re-gained consciousness just before driving into a bridge.

Now, a photo of the couple captured during their recovery has gone viral.

“I don’t know how we lived through that,” Arika said about the crash.

“All I cared about was seeing her and making sure she was okay before me, I didn’t care what happened to me as long as she was alright,” Hunter said about the moment captured in the photo.

Hunter and Arika said they’ve received well wishes from people all over.

“We’ve gotten hundreds of messages just telling us that our story brought them out of a dark place in their life and changed their life,” Arika said.
