The video she captured shows part of the incident that ended in a man being shot to death by a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy and, eventually, massive lane closures on I-95. The suspect had shot a woman outside a Lake Worth store and put her body in his car before traveling southbound on northbound I-95, causing three accidents, PBSO said.

Oliver’s video shows a deputy move the stopped car’s deployed airbag and a man’s head hanging out of the side of the window.

A deputy is heard screaming, “Don’t you (expletive) move. I’ll (expletive) kill you.”

Oliver said she didn’t see the woman in the car and also couldn’t see the man until the deputy moved the air bag. She also didn’t see any of the car wrecks.

“I am just thankful I wasn’t part of it,” she said.
