“Surreal” is how Bill Motley describes the events since his daughter Brianna, 22, survived a fiery, fatal auto accident on Interstate 95 on Wednesday night.
He got the call every parent dreads at 1:30 a.m. Thursday at his San Antonio, Texas home. But it wasn’t until he arrived in South Florida hours later that his brother who is serving in Iraq told him to Google the video that showed Boca Raton Officer Jimmy Jalil Jr. shooting out a rear passenger window and pulling Brianna from the burning wreck.
“I don’t know how she survived that crash,” Bill Motley said. “I told Jimmy he’s very, very modest but if it weren’t for him my daughter would be dead.”
