SHARE Lexi Hansen forgives driver who hit her (+video)

On Feb. 26, 2014, Lexi Hansen, an 18-year-old BYU student, was hit by a car while crossing a Provo intersection on her longboard. She was given less than a 5 percent chance of survival. The next day, Hansen's mom contacted Karson Pasker, the driver who had hit her daughter, to let him know she understood that accidents happen.

Now, more than a year later, Lexi Hansen and Pasker share the emotions they experienced after the accident and how they became friends in a new video.

Hansen, who is serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Iowa, explained that she was never angry with Pasker.

"He's such a good person. It's easy to love him," Hansen said in the video.

The video was published March 24 and at the time of publication had more than 9,000 views.
