They’re giving credit to where credit is due.
Christian social media stars Marcus and Kristin Johns survived what could have been a fatal crash, after going for a couple’s bike ride on Monday.
A vehicle, reportedly escaping police, appeared to make a beeline for the duo, according to Marcus. The driver, according to the Youtuber, was a man, and has still not been caught.
“It seemed like in the moment the guy was trying to hit us on purpose. He was driving erratically and swerving towards us. I tried to swerved out of the way but he just followed us to hit us.”
The You Can’t Do It author says the couple should be able to walk fully again in four months, and both are reportedly going through physical therapy.
Marcus, who became an internet star thanks to the Vine app, detailed the couple’s terrifying situation via Instagram.
Me and @kristinjohns are ok! Nothing is official yet, but this is what we think has happened: We were on the far side of the road with other bikers and pedestrians. It is a residential neighborhood with multiple stop signs and speed bumps back to back over a short distance. I look down the road and heard an engine revving all the way up and it seemed like in the moment the guy was trying to hit us on purpose.
I said to Kris “what is this guy doing!?” He was driving erratically and swerving towards us. I tried to swerved out of the way but he just followed us to hit us. I blacked out until I got to the hospital. So after I don’t know what really happened. Sadly Kristin was fully conscious and had to watch me unresponsive on the concreate till ambulance arrived for us. Kristin said we flew about 50 feet from the impact. When I woke up and was trying to explain what happened, and I didn’t think people would believe me that I was convinced he was trying to actually kill us.
But now it wall makes sense if the robbery and police pursuit is officially confirmed. Anyways, scary stuff. We are better now but please keep us in your prayers. We love you all. Me and kris got to see each other briefly today before going into our surgery and I am so glad she is safe. To friends and family, sorry if we don’t respond to you all now, it is hard to keep up with all of those reaching out (which is of course an amazing blessing to have!) praise Jesus. He has a plan for you and after today me and Kristin were totally reminded of this. Surviving this was nothing short of a miracle. ❤️🙏🏻
