Murieron dos jóvenes y otros dos fueron rescatados, a los pocos minutos el coche ardió y Jacq se encontraba en el asiento del copiloto. Sufrió quemaduras en el 60% de su cuerpo.

Now 20 years old, he cannot forgive himself for driving on that night three years ago. He's aware of devastating Jaqcueline Saburido's life. In June 2001 Reggie Stephey was convicted of two counts of intoxication manslaughter for the deaths of Jacqui's two friends. He was sentenced to seven years in prison and fined $20,000.

Early on Sunday morning, September 19, 1999, Jacqueline Saburido, 20, and four friends were on their way home from a birthday party. Reggie Stephey, an 18-year-old star football player, was on his way home from drinking beer with some buddies. On a dark road on the outskirts of Austin, Texas, Reggie’s SUV veered into the Oldsmobile carrying Jacqui and the others. Two passengers in the car were killed at the scene and two were rescued. Within minutes, the car caught fire. Jacqui was pinned in the front seat on the passenger side. She was burned over 60% of her body; no one thought she could survive. But Jacqui lived. Her hands were so badly burned that she no longer can use them. She lost her hair, her ears, her nose, her left eyelid and much of her vision. She has had more than 40 operations since the crash and has many more to go.

El 19 de septiembre de 1999, Jacqueline Saburido, de 20 años, y cuatro de sus amigos volvían de un cumpleaños a sus casas. Reggie Stephey, de 18 años regresaba a su casa tras haber estado bebiendo cerveza con unos amigos. En un camino oscuro su vehículo se desvió estrellándose contra el coche que llevaba Jacqui y sus cuatro amigos. Dos de los pasajeros murieron ahí mismo y otros dos fueron rescatados. El coche ardió. Jacqui quedó aprisionada quemándose mas del 60% de su cuerpo. Nadie creyó que pudiese sobrevivir. Sin embargo Jacqui sobrevivió. Sus manos se le quemaron tanto que ahora no puede hacer uso de ellas. Perdió todo el pelo, sus orejas, su nariz y la mayoría de su visión. Ha sufrido mas de 40 operaciones desde el accidente y aún tiene muchas más frente a ella.
