Popular YouTube Couple Say They Shouldn’t Be Alive Today, Thank God for Saving Them After They Were Hit By a Runaway Car While Riding Bikes

On May 11, popular YouTubers Kristin and Marcus Johns were riding their bicycles when the noticed a car driving erratically towards them. According to an Instagram shared by Marcus Johns from his hospital bed, it is believed that the car that hit them and then drove off was involved in a robbery.

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. ❤️????????

“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.

I said to Kris ‘what is this guy doing!?’ He was driving erratically and swerving towards us.”

As Marcus continued, he attempted to swerve out of the driver’s way but whoever was driving the car made it a point to follow where they went. But after impact, Marcus lost consciousness.

“Sadly Kristin was fully conscious and had to watch me unresponsive on the concreate till the 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, I didn’t think people would believe me that I was convinced he was trying to actually kill us. But now it all makes sense if the robbery and police pursuit is officially confirmed.”

Police believe the car was going at least 60 miles-per-hour when it hit them.

Currently, the couple is still recovering from their injuries inside a local LA hospital. As Kristin Johns shared via a tearful video from her hospital bed, she suffered a broken femur, while Marcus also suffered a broken leg. They both needed surgery as a result.

“Praise Jesus,” Marcus continued. “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.” And Kristin agreed.

“Jesus saved our lives last night.”

Thankfully, the couple seems to be on the mend. As they later revealed on Instagram following their surgeries, in which Kristin needed a metal rod permanently inserted into her leg, she was able to take five full assisted steps two days after her surgery.

The Johns also shared a clip of the first time they were able to see each other since the accident.

Day 3 update. I’m waking with a walker! Your prayers are working! @kristinjohns did her physical therapy today and was able to sit up. The doctors said that this is actually very good for next day after a femur surgery. Here is a little clip of me walking and surprising her at her room. This was our first time actually talking in person since the accident besides a quick wave before our surgery. Pain for both of has been up and down. Best and worst it’s been so far. Just taking a day at a time. Would love to be able to put my full weight on my leg but my upper body is doing most the lifting as of now. Either way, I’m mobile and they are saying I will likely be discharged tomorrow! Please pray that Kristin is able to stand and walk a little so we can leave together at the same time! Thanks for all the calls texts and messages on social media from family friends and all who have supported us. It means the world and lifts our spirits so much!! Also to all the medical professionals who are here working during corona and around the world we couldn’t be more grateful. Love you all. The staff here has been so nice and accommodating and the detective police and first responders have all been amazing and very supportive through this difficult time. As of now the person who hit us is still out and about as of now, but more details to come soon. I will update when I can. A lot more details have come to light. Very weird stuff. I will let you know when I can. More to come! Love you all and thanks for cheering us on! Edit: since recording and posting this video, Kristin has stop up and walked 5 steps! Hooray! She is already ahead of me on the posting ????????????
