PINOLE, CA (KTVU/CNN) - A California woman is making a habit out of saving people.
Keenia Williams slammed her brakes in front of a multi-vehicle wreck on interstate 80 in Pinole, CA.
"The truck hit her, she's trying to put her brakes on. A car hit her to swing her backwards, and it hit the wall, which made her flip to her roof," Williams said of the accident.
She says there was a woman trapped in a smoking vehicle. At the same time, screeching right into her mind was a memory.
"I'm like, 'Oh, my god! Here we go again,'" she said.
The Vallejo resident disregarded the thought, jumped out of her Explorer and right into action.
"The door's kind of jammed. I jammed the door right open, and she was upside down. I'm looking, reaching for the seatbelt; it's kind of stuck. Yanked the seatbelt down, she fell down a little bit, but I was able to get her out," she said.
Moments later, a California Highway Patrol officer arrived on scene, asking what made her intervene.
"Well, it's not my first time that I saved somebody," she said.
In October 2011 on Highway 101 in San Francisco, a big rig crashed and burst into flames.
Williams stopped her car, got out, jumped over a stream of leaking fuel, and pulled the unconscious driver to safety.
The two were reunited a week later when Williams's bravery was recognized by the city of San Francisco.
She's a single mom, a Christian, and faith she says played a role in 2011 and today.
"That's my God, my father upstairs. He's telling me this must be my calling," she said.
And the woman she helped in Pinole whispered two words Williams says that she will never forget
"When the officer, the highway patrol officer was there in the ambulance truck with her, she's like, 'Thank you,' so I was like, 'You welcome,'" she said.
