SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A Utah family is calling their daughter a miracle baby after she survived a deadly crash.

Amy Wilson was eight months pregnant when an 18-year-old driver going 95 mph lost control and hit her vehicle in February, Good 4 Utah reports.

Wilson woke up in the hospital with no recollection of the emergency C-section doctors had to perform to deliver her baby girl, who she named Grace Deliverance Wilson.

Both Grace and her mother suffered brain injuries. The premature infant was also born without a heartbeat. Six months later, Wilson says her daughter shows no signs of brain damage and they are both recovering well.

“We honestly feel like it’s a miracle,” Wilson told Good 4 Utah. “Just the fact that we’ve been able to recover so well, we really feel like it’s a miracle.”

While the Wilson family is celebrating the gift of life, they are also sending their condolences to two other families grappling with loss.

Two high school students died in the car driven by 18-year-old Abraham Miranda, who police said caused the crash. He’s been charged with manslaughter and reckless endangerment.

“Our hearts just go out to them, and I hope they can experience healing and be able to move forward with their lives as well,” said Wilson.

    The neon sign is a caricature of an African-American man, with a porter's cap, with the words Coon Chicken Inn written inside the mouth. The issue came up after a person attending a company Christmas party on Wednesday night at Cook's Garage noticed the sign hanging on the wall.
