'I'm just really lucky,' Boise woman recovering after rollover says

Boise woman recovers from rollover crash.

BOISE - A 20-year-old woman was caught in an aggressive driving incident in Boise that nearly took her life, and now she's trying to recover. 

According to Idaho State Police, Kristan Selby was traveling westbound on the Connector near the Fairview exit when the accident happened. Officials say Selby was entering the interstate when she tried to avoid crashing into a car that was trying to avoid an accident with a third car.

"It's hard looking at pictures because I think, 'well what if I wasn't here,' and I think about the other people who have lost people and I'm just really lucky," said Selby.

Less than a week after Selby's car rolled over, she's still counting her blessings.

"Whiplash and abdominal pain is so much better than possibly losing a limb or not even being here," said Selby.

"I look at it and I say, 'why did it have to happen at all?'"

It's an accident that still haunts her, especially when she's behind the wheel. She says she has flashbacks of the noises and how quickly it all happened.

"One minute you can be here and the next minute you're not and it's super scary to just accept that fact," said Selby. "What if I don't get lucky enough to have a second chance and be here? It makes me not want to drive at all."

Until the police find the other two drivers, she says she will not stop searching for them.

I'm not just letting it go," said Selby. "To this day I haven't let it go and I wont let it go until I find them."

Idaho State Police is still investigating the accident and looking for the two cars involved.

They are described as a white four-door sedan, possibly a Chevrolet Malibu with an Idaho elk license plate with a '9' and an 'E' in it. The other is described as a silver Saturn hatchback type of vehicle.
