Baton Rouge, La., teen Elizabeth Dazzio, her sister Caroline, and their friend are thanking Taylor Swift this week after the singer (indirectly) helped save them after a brutal car crash.

Local news outlet WBRZ reports that the Dazzio sisters and their pal attended Swift's May 22 concert at LSU Tiger Stadium, and were driving home Friday night when Elizabeth fell asleep at the wheel on a stretch of Interstate 110. After the crash, Elizabeth was knocked unconscious and her two passengers were trapped.

"You could smell the gas and smoke," Caroline told WBRZ. "I was just thinking we need to get out of this car."

When the girls learned two of the three phones in the car were dead and they couldn't locate the third, they were forced to get creative to find help. Using light-up bracelets Tiger Stadium handed out that synched with Swift's music during the show, the girls frantically waved their makeshift flares until a Good Samaritan saw the lights and stopped.

The kind stranger and a man with her helped pull the girls from the mangled vehicle.

Swift was shaken by the story, and took to Twitter on Tuesday, May 28, to send well-wishes. "This is unreal," she wrote. "I'm so happy they're okay."
