Kapinga Muanza Kalala and her three kids were walking across the street at East Exposition Avenue and South Abilene Street when the car hit them, pinning Kalala and her 2-year-old daughter Angela underneath the vehicle.
Kalala says she feels lucky to be alive and hopes she gets the chance to talk to the people who saved her life.
"I want to meet them and say thank you," Kalala said."If they have a chance to come to see me, [I would] give them a hug."
Bystanders and a police officer helped rescue the mother and daughter.
"I know God put them out there to come and help us," she said.
