Katherine Taylor-Hood said her mind went completely blank as soon as she was hit.

"You think absolutely nothing," she said. "I just followed through. I had to let it happen, so I rolled."

There was no time for fear even, you just had to go with it.- Katherine Taylor-Hood

The 15-year-old says she was on her way to school Thursday morning and in the middle of the crosswalk on Bonaventure Avenue in St. John's, right in front of Holy Heart of Mary High School.

"I look over and see what I thought was a black sedan," she told CBC's On The Go. "And then I see the grill, and I'm flying.

"There was no time for fear even, you just had to go with it."
