A mystery that first gripped emergency workers, and then people everywhere, has been solved.
Last week a priest seemed to come out of nowhere at a car crash in Missouri.
First responders were struggling to remove 19-year-old Katie Lentz from her badly mangled car. She was severely injured and time was running out.
Lentz asked the workers to pause and pray out loud for her. That's when the mystery priest appeared, though the road had been cordoned off.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Jefferson City said Rev. Patrick Dowling was that man.
"I didn't hide and I just stood there waiting, praying. It is almighty God who intervened because there was something exceptional there in the manner of her rescue," he said.
According to CNN.com Dowling wrote in the comment, which has since been deleted: "I absolved and anointed Katie, and, at her request, prayed that her leg would not hurt. Then I stepped aside to where some rescue personnel and the pilot were waiting, and prayed the rosary silently."
Shortly afterward, workers were able to free Lentz from the car. She was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but the priest was gone, sparking rumors of an angel.
