Martin, a photographer, was driving behind Sarah and Paul to the accident scene, but she didn't expect them to jump out of the car. "It was a surprise to see them pull over, because it was raining and they were in wedding clothes," Martin told BuzzFeed Life. "I thought, surely, they're not going to get out, but they did."
One of Martin's sons-in-law convinced her to snap the photo. He said, "You're missing a great photo opportunity!" which kicked Martin's photographer instincts into overdrive.
