CHESTER COUNTY -- From somewhere in a part of her 58-year-old body undiscovered before Monday and hopefully never to be needed again Rosa Caldwell found strength.
Before that, she said, the only words I could call out was, Help me, Jesus.
The 13-year-old Plymouth in which she was riding, with her good friend Deloise Clawson, had just smashed into a concrete barrier dividing the traffic on Interstate 77.
Clawson was driving southbound on I-77 after the pair had finished their shift at Ross clothing distributor in Fort Mill when a truck carrying gasoline collided with their car, and both vehicles slammed into that barrier.
The carnage on the road covered the highway. Gasoline was already pouring onto the road, burning in spikes that shot into the air, even through the drainage ditches and causing more flames.
