Good deed nearly ends in tragedy

May 5, 2014

WOONSOCKET – What started out as a trip to help a friend with a graduation essay turned into a nightmarish ordeal for 20-year-old Nakya Gray Sunday night.
Moments after she turned the corner onto Prospect Street, Gray could see the limb of a massive tree toppling across the power lines off to her right, heading directly into the path of the Nissan Maxima she was driving.
It all happened so fast she didn’t have time to evaluate the pros or cons of hitting the brakes or continuing to travel, hopefully outrunning the tree. Before she had time to think, she found herself trapped in the crumpled wreck of her aunt’s Nissan Maxima, with one huge limb imbedded in the trunk, another in the windshield, inches from her face.
“She’s very lucky,” said Wendy Gray, Nakya’s mother. “It’s just by the grace of God she came out of there with just bumps and bruises. Nothing was broken. It was a miracle of God.”
