A 20-year-old woman in Washington state says God used a Carrie Underwood song to help keep her alive following a motorcycle accident.

Kaylean Johnson was riding on a motorcycle with a 61-year-old family friend when they were involved in a crash on a back road and plunged over an embankment.

After the wreck, they walked trying to find help before building a fire and spending the first night together. Since she was younger and in better health, Kaylean then went off to find help alone. Her friend made it to a restaurant and got help two days later, but Kaylean lost her way.

She would end up lost in the woods for a total of eight days, and she credits a Carrie Underwood song with giving her the faith to carry on through that ordeal.

Kaylean tells Seattle TV station KOMO, “The song, I sing it in my heart all the time, it’s ‘Jesus, Take the Wheel,’ by Carrie Underwood. I sung that song the night I went missing, and when I got home, it came on the radio.”

The folks who rescued Kaylean say she was hungry, thirsty and a little cut up, but otherwise seemed fine.
